Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT - JU­NIOR FOURSOMES

THE Blain­roe Ju­nior Foursomes squad of Liam Con­nolly, Stephen Kenny, David Lally, Conor Leonard, Sean Leonard and Jonathan Ryan, man­aged by Dave Smyth and coached by David Lewis, PGA Pro­fes­sional are the Ir­ish Ju­nior Foursomes Run­ners-Up.

Af­ter an im­pres­sive win in the Le­in­ster Fi­nal, Blain­roe met Tuam in the All-Ire­land semi-fi­nal on Sun­day morn­ing in Cas­tle Dar­gan.

Blain­roe se­cured a place in the fi­nal with an ex­cit­ing fin­ish on the 18th hole over two very tight matches.

They promptly re­turned to the course the same af­ter­noon for the All-Ire­land fi­nal against de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons War­ren­point.

Con­di­tions on the course were tough with sod­den fair­ways and deep rough play­ing havoc with lost balls.

Both sides played su­perb golf with the matches be­ing called in favour of War­ren­point on the 17th hole.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Blain­roe on an ex­cel­lent per­for­mance.

This is the first time Blain­roe has ever com­peted in an All-Ire­land fi­nal.

Conor Leonard, Jonathan Ryan, Sean Leonard, David Lally, Liam Con­nolly and Stephen Kenny from Blain­roe Golf Club at the All-Ire­landJu­nior Foursomes fi­nal in Cas­tle Dar­gan.
