The Corkman - - NEWS - JOHN TARRANT

THERE was just no stop­ping a ladies team from clinch­ing out­right hon­ours at the pop­u­lar Mill­street GAA Golf Clas­sic.

A Cork and Kerry com­bi­na­tion again emerged to claim the hon­ours as the ever so con­sis­tent Grace Dennehy team, that also fea­tured Elaine McCarthy and Peggy O’Donoughue, left their male coun­ter­parts trail­ing in their wake at the mag­nif­i­cent O’Ma­hony’s Course in Kil­lar­ney to savour the spoils for the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year amidst bril­liant sun­shine.

“We’re de­lighted, the weather was su­perb and the course ter­rific, its great to re­turn for the sec­ond year and re­tain the ti­tle”, said Grace.

All in­volved were thrilled with the stag­ing that’s be­come a per­ma­nent fix­ture on the Mill­street GAA cal­en­dar.

Tak­ing the over­all prize were Grace’s Sa­lon team with a whop­ping 64 points with all three ladies con­tribut­ing to an ex­cel­lent team per­for­mance.

Run­ner up place be­longed to Mill­street Par­ish Priest Canon John Fitzger­ald, joined by De­nis and Eric Hickey yield­ing 60 points, ahead of third placed Paul Daw­son, De­nis Kiely and Colm O’Con­nor rep­re­sent­ing Daw­son Travel.

The qual­ity of prizes, along with the op­por­tu­nity to play on a course with spec­tac­u­lar views of the fa­mous Kil­lar­ney lakes over­looked by the McGillicuddy Reeks, made for a spe­cial oc­ca­sion.

At a prize­giv­ing in Tarrant’s Bar, Mill­street GAA Chair­man Michael Cleary ap­plauded all in­volved on or­gan­is­ing the pop­u­lar event and the sup­port of team from across the South West Re­gion.

Thanks were ex­tended to main spon­sors Cole­mans, Mill­street; Clover­hill Food In­gre­di­ents, Tarrant Funeral Di­rec­tors, Claramore Con­struc­tion and Donough Hickey Mo­tors, Rath­more in ad­di­tion to a host of tee-box spon­sors..
