Malachy Murrin of Killybegs was the worthy winner of the September medal competition, sponsored by the Ardara G.A.A. club. After a week of incessant rain and wind (Wednesday‘s Open was cancelled), it was a relief to find conditions more to the golfers’ liking on Sunday. Malachy is no stranger to the winner’s podium, and he made an excellent start, birdying both the third and tough fourth on his front nine of one over gross. Another at fourteen, together with a fine collection of pars culminated in a six under par nett score of 67.
