What a fabulous night the ladies had last Thursday to celebrate the end of their Winter League and to hear the all important final scores. Despite a smoke screen to try and keep the final scores a mystery Team 1 captained by Eileen Kerr maintained their strong lead and were triumphant with a final score of 417 with final week scores coming from Teresa Fitzpatrick, Mary O’Toole and Elaine Hamilton. Well done to the other team members Brid Finlay and Bridie Keenan. They received their beautiful hampers from Lady Captain Rosin Kerr. 2nd were Team 3 on 407, 3rd team 5 on 393 4th Team 4 on 346 and team 2 were 5th Thank you to the ladies for the fabulous nibbles, the craic and a huge thanks to Paul Jenkins who very kindly looked after our imbibery needs.
Good to see our Captain out on a Sunday morning, start the way you mean to go on he assures me.
