Narin & Portnoo Golf Club Notes 9th November 2010

The Rider Cup went the way of Ardara once again thanks to a stirring comeback on day two after the Owentocker men found themselves three points down after the fourballs. The final score of nine points apiece meant that Ardara retained the cup for another year, much to the delight of society captain, Donie McCole.

The first of the pre-Christmas outings in the “About or Over 50 Society” took place last Friday in Narin Portnoo with a good turnout despite the inclement weather. Micheal McGinley with an excellent 31 points had two to spare over his playing partner Barney Cunningham who took second place on a break of tie. Depending on weather, it is hoped to play on Fridays up to Christmas. The tee is booked for this Friday, November 12th from 10 to 11a.m.

While the previous two Wednesday Opens were won with the same score, Paddy B. Boyle went five better in winning the most recent event. Mícheál McGinley and Donie McCole shot 34 points; both players were solid on the front nine and held on coming home into the breeze. Their scores were considered excellent efforts but Paddy’s performance last Wednesday was simply outstanding. Eight three-pointers were recorded on the first thirteen holes and over the sixteen holes played, only Vinny’s Corner (12th) failed to yield at least two points to the Narin man.

Patrick A. Gallagher won the Sunday competition on October 24th by two points from P.J. Gallagher in second. His back nine of 25 points was astounding considering that it included a blank. The birdies on 13 and 16 more than compensated!

The Rumble on the Bank Holiday saw John Quinn, Willie Quinn and Seamus Ryan race to victory with 77 points. A steady collection of pars made all the difference in the end. The Killybegs trio of Alan O’Keeffe, Sean Rodgers and Denis Carbery were worthy runners-up.

Pauric O’Donnell was the victor in the last but one Sunday competition on a day when scoring was very keen in the mild conditions. A run of pars from the 7th to the 13th were the key to success, and the birdie three on the penultimate Dorleens was the icing on the cake.

Last Sunday’s event saw Stephen McHugh skip over the front nine in twenty-one points courtesy of a four-pointer on Runway (4th) and a plethora of three and two pointers. A solid back nine ensured the score was kept intact and by round’s end, Stephen had three shots to spare over the best of the rest.

The Gents defeated the Ladies five-two in the annual friendly challenge last Saturday. Performance of the day though went to May McCann and Annette McGettigan who trumped John Molloy and Martin Roarty five and four. The ladies recorded six nett birdies and a nett eagle during their short round. Michael Naughton and John Quinn also found Bernie Tonry and Rena Boyle too difficult to better, but that was as good as it got for the ladies and the lads reeled off five victories in the other matches to win comfortably.

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.

Naomh Conaill Notes 14th September 2010

The seniors and reserves had victories at home to St Eunans in the league last Sunday. The seniors won 2-8 to 0-12 and this victory guarantees they stay in Div 1 for next year and the reserves won 2-8 to 1-9. The seniors next game is the Co Final against Killybegs on Sunday 3rd October. The reserves are home to Ardara this Saturday in the league at 4.30pm. The 3rds are also at home this Saturday and they play Glenfin at 6pm.

The Club, in conjunction with the Glenties Harvest Fair Festival Committee staged a very successful and competitive tournament on Saturday 11th September. A feast of football was served up by the A and B players from Ardara, Dungloe, Killybegs and Naomh Conaill. The ‘A’ competition was an epic battle with three teams Dungloe, Killybegs and Naomh Conaill finishing all square on points at the finish. Instead of deciding the winner on scoring difference a draw was made that resulted in Killybegs defeating Dungloe in a play-off game. The stage was then set for a Killybegs V Naomh Conaill final and this was won convincingly by a well drilled Killybegs side. Well done Daffy!.

The ‘B’ tournament was won comfortably by the home side Naomh Conaill, winning all their games and ending a very successful year for this group of players.

Well done to all the children and their mentors and a big thank you as always to the ladies who once again looked after the catering and to our referee’s Ronan, Damien and Hughie.

The club now have a wide range of merchandise on sale in Mc Glincheys.

The new club website is now up and running and you can access the site it by logging on to
