Ladies Party Night

The clubhouse looked splendid and beautifully decorated by the ladies committee a real festive treat! Our shiny new Lady Captain Geraldine Fitzpatrick presided over her first presentation evening and what a pleasant task presenting the Christmas Hampers to the winning Winter League Team of Brid Finlay, team captain, Noeleen McCague, Noirin McKenna, Lynn Whelan, Kathleen Gibbons, Gio McGeever and Rosita McCabe. Well done ladies some fantastic scores especially in the final week with 22 from Brid and 19 from Rosita and Noeleen. They certainly didn’t take their foot of the gas! Just 22 points behind! In 2nd place were Team 1 Catherine Farrell, Lady Captain Geraldine, Teresa Fitzpatrick, Celesta McKiernan, Eileen Kerr, Marian Foy, Nuala McCauley and Ann Kelly. 3rd were Team 5 Vera Tighe, Una O’Reilly, Roberta Hamilton, Loretto Traynor, Eileen Maguire, Bridie Keenan and Julie O’Harte.

A huge thank you to President Anne for running this competition and for keeping us swinging well into the winter months, to Brid and her buyers for the fabulous prizes and yes everybody got a prize! To the ladies who paid and played in all conditions, you will be delighted to learn that over €1,300 was taken in. Keeping the last few weeks scoring secret appears to have had a positive effect in keeping everyone playing to the bitter end! Thank you to Aidan Fitzpatrick for the wonderful banquet of goodies and to everyone who was able to come along and enjoy the party night. President Anna McCarthy mentioned that the list for the Spring League will be up shortly!!
