Due to a booking error our President's Cup venue had to be changed at the last minute. Luckily Headfort New were able to accommodate us and it proved a fine substitute. The course was in fine condition with balmy weather to boot. Thirty five members turned out to battle for the coveted cup.

Brian Heverin was victorious with 39 points. Eamon Gilsenan was 2nd on 38 with Dale Duignan third on 36 points.

Category winners were C1 - Kieran McGurran, C2 - Christy Duignan, C3 - Oliver Henry and C4 - went to Bill hayes. Christy was also the longest driver with Dale Duignan nearest the Pin. M.Stone bagged the front 9 with G.McGuire taking the back 9. There was only one 2 carded which went to another member of the Duignan clan in the guise of Jamie.

In a break with tradition, the presentations took place back at the Village Inn where hot food and music were provided by our generous hosts and sponsor.

Our next outing is the first August outing and takes us to Palmerstown House

Mount Juliet winner Dale Duignan (left) with Capt. John O'Connor presenting

Our second outing took us to Mount Juliet in Kilkenny on Saturday 27/04/2019. Thirty nine made the trip which included two visitors. Sixteen players made it an overnight stay. Storm Hannah had swept in over friday night leaving us with very tricky windy conditions with squally showers that passed quickly and mixed with some hail. But not as unpleasant as it could have been.

Dale Duignan emerged victorious with 37 points. Returned new member for this year Peter O'Donnell was second on 41 points. Unfortunately for Peter, under the new member win rule, victory wasn't possible. Brendan (Fritz) Harmon secured third on 35 points on a countback from Brian Heverin.

Category winners were as follows: C1 - Anthony Quinn. C2 - Brian Heverin. C3 - Peter Kelly and C4 - Richie Delea.

Longest drive went to Jamie Duignan with Kieran McGurran nearest the pin having hit the flag and dropping close. David Dolan took the front 9 with Jamie Duignan also bagging the back 9. There were 3 winners of the 2's competition namely K.McGurran, C.Duignan and J.O'Neill.

This was the Society's first visit to the the Mount Juliet venue and the committee have decided it is definetly worth a return visit. Sixteen members made this an overnight stay where they stayed in Kilkenny city Saturday night and had a ball.

We move onto the European Club for our May outing.

Thirty four members and two visitors were present to see off our new captain for 2019 which is none other than John "bricking it" O'Connor. We welcomed back three former members, they being Tommy Vaughan, Peter O'Donnell and Ali Powell and with newbie Mark McNevin.

Our Captains Day competition was held in Headfort (Old Course) on Saturday 22nd September 2018. Previous Captains event was held there in 2016. Thirty eight members and one visitor took the field. Conditions were calm, and overcast with a slight chill early on warming up with late sunshine. The course had been hit with passing storm Ali the previous Thursday leaving lots of debris under trees if you were unlucky enough to find yourself there.

A young Cormac Foley took the honours with 39 points just pipping Anthony Quinn, a previous double Captains winner, on 38 points. Chippy's 2nd spot was confirmed on a count back with 2nd to 5th spots all on 38 points. They were Chippy, Conor Stone, David Lenihan and William Monaghan respectively.

Turkey Shoot winner Kieran McGurran (centre) with Captain William Monaghan (left) and Kevin Conneely event sponsor representing Athboy Physiotherapy and Sports Clinic.

Our final outing of 2017 was the Turkey Shoot competition which took place in Headfort New GC, Kells on Saturday 11th November 2017. Twenty three members took up the challange. Conditions were good in that there wasn't a puff of air, not too cold but soggy in places underfoot.

Kieran McGurran emerged top of the heap with 36 points seperated on a count back from Christy King also with 36 points. Gerry McGuire was third, again on a count back with 35. Only 5 shots seperated the first 10 placings. Cormac Reilly and William Monaghan shared the 2's. There was little impact on the Golfer of the year spot with young Jamie Duignan already safe in his first year in the Society. Eamonn Gilsenan ran a close second. See below for list of placings in Headford..

The date for the AGM will be announced shortly and don't forget to gather a team for our Table Quiz on Friday 8th December.

Captains winner David Dolan (right) with Captain James Monaghan presenting.

Our Captains Day competition was held in Knightsbrook on Saturday 9th September 2017. Thirty seven contested the event which included three visitors. Conditions were blustery with some heavy passing showers but was pleasant in between.

We had some cracking scores where 40 points wasn't enough to secure victory without a count back. There were 4 scores with 40 or more with Captain James Monaghan carding a 42. Victory however goes to David Dolan who carded 40 points with Captain James demoted to second place for long standing etiquette. Third spot went to Tom Carrol also on 40 with a young Jamie Duignan 4th also with 40 points.

Brian Giles bagged 5th on 37 points with Alan McNally claiming 6th on 36. Full results and handicaps are here.

J2's Winnersamie also bagged the longest drive with Peter Kelly nearest the pin. The visitors prize went to Peter Caffrey who was on a sojourn from New York none the less. The 2's was split 5 ways for those cardng a 2 and they were E.Gilsenan, T.Carroll, J.Duignan, B.Hayes and P.Kelly.

After dinner which was also held in Knightsbrook, Captain James Monaghan made his presentations. He also thanked the committee for their efforts during the year. Following formal proceedings, a good night was had back at the Snug House. There is small matter of our annual Ryder Cup with Marcies (Trim) on the immediate horizon followed by our last outing in November for the Turkey shoot in Headford which will unveil our golfer of the year for 2017.

Kevin McHugh emerged victorious carding 33. Unfortunately Kevin had to depart before we got a chance to capture his victory mugshot. Jody Corrigan filled second spot on 30 points with Denis Botha third on 29 points.

Category winners were C1 - Jamie Duignan, C2 - Trevor Darling and C3 went to John O'Connor.The longest drive went to James Monaghan with Alan McNally taking nearest the pin.

Powerscourt Presidents Cup - 17/06/2017



This years Powerscourt outing was the inaugural President's Cup competition and was sponsored by ARCH Plumbing & Heating Ltd. With conditions balmy on the hottest day of the year so far, sun cream was the order of the day. Thirty five made the Wicklow trip which included five visitors.

President Bill Hayes made a short speech before presentations. He thanked the Society for bestowing the Presidency upon him and gave mention to those who were the founding fathers of the Society and also thanked past and recent committees for bringing the Society to where it was today.

The K Club (Smurfit Course) - 20/05/2017



We travelled to Straffan in County Kildare to visit the K Club Smurfit Course. It was in good condition as you would expect but the disappointment was that the Bar food ceased at 4pm just as we were ready to refuel and with another Society behind us. Thirty five made the trip including one visitor from Sweden no less. It was a day where one got sun burn between the heavy showers.

Victory went to Stephen Kelly with a notable score of 47 points off 14. The new handicap system will put a dent in that. Terry Farrell took 2nd spot from Bernard Duignan on a count back with both on 38 points.

Category winners were C1 - C.King, C2 - J.Corrigan and C3 went to E.Gilsenan. The longest drive went to Brian Heverin, need we say more. Jamie Duignan took nearest the pin.

Michael Collins won the front 9 with Kevin McHugh winning the back 9. The two's went to B.Heverin, D.Dolan, S.Kelly and T.Farrell.

Unfortunately we have to report a theft from a member on the course during the day. The culprits were caught red-handed with the evidence in their beaks. Some cheeky crow deftly pulled a chocolate bar from the pouch of Richie Delea's golf bag. while his group was focused on the putting green only to return to witness the crows tucking into the bar only feet from the bag. The crows had more food at the K Club than the members did.

We move on to Powerscourt for our June event.

Heritage winner Brendan Corrigan (left). Capt. James Monaghan presenting

Our Heritage outing took place on Saturday 22nd April. The day was overcast but dry and relatively mild. Thirty two travelled on the day, which included three visitors. Brendan Corrigan won the day with a young Jamie Duignan next and with Eamonn Gilsenan in third spot.

Young Jamie had a fruitful day as he also bagged nearest the pin and the two's all to himself. Category winners were C1 - Brian Heverin, C2 - Peter Kelly and C3 - Tommy Collins. Brian also took the longest drive prize and the visitors prize went to Peter O'Donnell.

Pin positions on the day were difficult and so placed for a following Match-Play. We move on to the K Club for the May outing.

Our first outing of the 2017 season took us to the European Club in Brittas Bay on Saturday 11th March. The day was dull with drizzle for a time but practically calm.

The honours went to Michael Collins followed in second by Christy Duignan with Kieran McGurran in third spot. Category Winners were C1 - Stephen Kelly, C2 - Bernard Duignan and C3 went to Brendan Corrigan.

James Monaghan on his Captains Drive at the European Club. Kevin McHugh was best on the front 9 with Brian Heverin on the back.
