Last Sunday saw Clones host 110 players from all over Ulster for the qualifier of the All Ireland Mixed Foursomes. The weather couldn’t have been better with warm sunshine even for the early starters. The course was in magnificent condition and a huge thank you for Hugh John and Finbar for their efforts especially for cutting the greens at 5am!! Aidan Fitzpatrick and his staff did a great job keeping the players satiated with breakfasts then meals as they finished. Thanks also to Mary Logue, Michael Connolly and all the volunteer bar staff. We were honoured to have Captain Sean Bonner, Lady Captain Veronica McGorman and President Martin Taylor in attendance. Thanks also to Mary O’Reilly for the beautiful flowers. The qualifiers were Castleblayney 288, Rossmore 289.5, Cavan 298 and Mannan Castle 290. Hard luck Clones who were sitting in 3rd position until right up to the end with 302 and finished 5th. A great day very well run by Richard Dylan from the GUI.
