Club Captain Liam Hartnett was saddened, that once again, the planned competition schedule for last weekend was totally “washed out”, and on this occasion, by just ordinary rainfall, such is the saturation that our courses have endured since mid November last, that they easily became flooded once more, he remarked, that this is ridiculous, the biblical deluge only lasted for forty days and forty nights and now we are well past that, sure it was no wonder that we called the course that we concocted, in order to have some golf being played on recently, the “Ark”. worst of all, can you imagine that “Imogen” is on her way to us, we really should stop giving names to these storms, just look at what has happened to us since we started, late last year.!!!
With no Golf Club results to comment on, once again, then can we please take this opportunity to remind all of those who gave any form of assistance whatsoever in the clean-up’s of our courses in December and January that the-time sheet for the “four person scramble” our complimentary and thank you competition, is currently available in the Club House, and we very much look forward to seeing a full time-sheet for the event next Saturday, with a start time scheduled for 10.30 a.m. on the Mahony’s Point course, and the prize giving will be in the Club House around 3.30 p.m.
Liam also wishes to pass on his sincere condolences on the recent passing of our former Club member Sheila Kelliher,Sheila was the wife of our member Tomas, who has represented our Club at National level on many occasions, mother, of our members Stephen and Ryan, and sister of Daithi McGillicuddy, another of our members, Liam also wishes to remember Sheila’s mother Mary, sister Noreen, and Sheila’s other brother Sean, in his thoughts and prayers. Sheila will be most fondly recalled by one and all of our membership as being a most jovial and entertaining Lady, who regaled us on many occasions with her renditions of “I’m on the, top of the world”, and other numbers, that she was singing in the local Killarney Musical Society shows over the years.
Liam also wishes to send his condolences to the family of Patrick “Brack” O’Sullivan from Beaufort, who passed away in the past week, Patrick’s passing has deprived our area of one of our most colourful characters, and at a great age, Patrick was in to his nineties.
