Grace and team reclaim Millstreet Golf
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.
