Brid Finlay’s Lady Captain’s Day was last Saturday and the weather was atrocious!

Roberta Hamilton was second with nett 75 and the Gross went to Elaine Hamilton with 89. Section A (0-21) Mary Trant, Section B (22-28) Teresa Hanawin and Section C (29-36) Lady Vice-Captain Collette McCahery. Front 9 Helen Connolly and back 9 Anne McCarthy.
