Ladies Winter League

It was decided to curtail the last week of the Winter League and finish up on Saturday 25th of November which produced a nail biting end as there was only 4 points between 1st and 3rd Place ! Once again this competition was well supported and thank you ladies for your participation. The winners were Team 1 with 290 points well done to Roberta Hamilton, Roisin Kerr, Anne McCarthy, Irene McConkey, Bridie Keenan and vice-captain Collette McCahery in 2nd on 287 were Team 4 Kathleen Leonard, Lady Captain Brid Finlay, Geraldine Fitzpatrick, Mary O’Toole, Maureen Lynch and Cara Corbett. In 3rd place were Team 3 on 286 Celeste McKiernan, Elaine Hamilton, Una O’Reilly, Doli Maguire, Gio O’Corry-Crowe and Betty Wilson. In fourth place were Team 2 with 281 Teresa Hanawin, Rosita McCabe, Catherine Farrell, Eileen Kerr, Loreto Traynor and Kathleen Fitzpatrick. In 5th place were Team 6 with 270 Noeleen McCague, Vera Tighe, Joy Cassidy, Marian Foy, Kathleen Gibbons and Mena Fitzpatrick and bringing up the rear were Team 5 on 247 Irene Rooney, Mary Trant, Helen Connolly, Noirin McKenna, Paula Jenkins and Sheila Mulligan. There is a prize for everyone who played at least 3 times and the presentation takes place on Friday 15th of December at 8pm and its party night (nibbles will be supplied). Congratulations once again to Team 1 who will each get a coveted Christmas Hamper filled with seasonal goodies.


The numbers drawn on 27th November were 2,3,11 and 18 and there were no winners of the 5,200 jackpot now standing at 5,300. The 5 lucky dippers each winning 20 were Paddy Devine and G4, Amanda Farrell C/O Fabiola, Pat McKenna Legal Hill, Gerry Dowds Clones and Eddie Masterson Cosy Bar. Well done them! Lotto only one euro or one pound or 6 tickets for a fiver!

Ladies AGM

The ladies Annual General Meeting held last Sunday was unusual in the fact that the outgoing Lady Captain Teresa Hanawin wasn’t in attendance due to the sad loss of her sister-in law. The lady in waiting Brid took the chair and thanked the outgoing committee on behalf of Teresa. Madam Secretary Catherine Farrell produced her usual comprehensive report of events in the past year followed by the report from the Treasurer Bridie Keenan.  The transfer of office was made to the incoming Lady Captain Brid Finlay by Geraldine Fitzpatrick.  Lady Captain Brid then introduced her Vice-Captain, Collette McCahery. The committee were duly elected and are: ex officio Teresa Hanawin, Secretary Catherine Farrell, Treasurer Bridie Keenen, Competition Secretary and Handicap Secretary Roberta Hamilton and the elected members are Loretto Traynor, Eileen Kerr, Anne McCarthy, Joy Cassidy, Geraldine Fitzpatrick, Rosita McCabe and Paula Jenkins.  Lady Captain Brid announced her Lady Captain’s weekend away will be 20th to 22nd of April 2018 possible in Bray and her Lady Captain’s Day will be on Saturday 28th July 2018. The meeting was brought to a close by Lady Captain Brid and everyone wishes her well in her coming year.
