The club’s Junior Cup team narrowly failed to qualify for the matchplay stages in Ballybofey and Stranorlar Golf Club on Sunday. Playing for Narin and Portnoo were Willie Quinn, Eamonn McGill, Harold Reid (team captain), Kevin Patton and Martin Roarty.
John Bán Gallagher won his third event of 2010 on Sunday, pipping a plethora of golfers who also finished on a nett 71. His steady front nine of six over was improved upon coming home, with seven pars illustrating the quality of John’s ball-striking and putting.
The many fans of Neily Gildea know he can hold a good tune but his golf game often runs the gamut from low on the scoring scale to the dulcet tones of his upper register. His eclectic performance in the most recent Wednesday Open included a sweet birdie, several pars, a few bogeys and a discordant double bogey. Expect more from the Ardara man this summer!
Last week, I sympathized with the Gillespie family on the death of Conal Eamonn’s mum. I should have referred instead to Conal’s mother-in-law and I sincerely apologise for the error.
It is regrettable to record that the planned presentation of prizes last Saturday evening was cancelled due to the poor attendance of prize-winners.
