Men’s Club

Captain’s Address


It is a massive honour for me to become Mens’ Club Captain of this great golf club for 2018. I am acutely aware of the responsibility of the role which has been bestowed upon me and will vow to carry it out to the best of my ability. 

I am conscious of the fact that we are but custodians of the Club and that we need to uphold the traditions and values that make this a great Club, and hopefully lay the foundations for continued success for those who come after us. 

I am extremely proud to be leading our Club into what shall be our 125th year.  It promises to be a great year and will kick off with Paul McGinley coming to the Club on to accept his Honorary Life Membership. I hope to see a great turnout for this award, and wish to publicly thank Denis Cronin who first mooted the idea of an award, and Michael Crossan and Victor Mulcahy who pulled the event together, working diligently behind the scenes. 

I Joined the Club in 2002 along with an influx of my contemporaries who had learned the basics and honed our craft from our time spent at Deerpark Pitch & Putt Club. 

On that note it would be remiss not to mention the passing of Con Hartnett, who among others instilled a great sense of volunteerism in us as young lads at the Pitch & Putt Club, and I had the privilege of serving on my first ever Committee role in 1994 while Con was commencing his 21st and final year as Treasurer. 

The apple did not fall from the tree in this regard as Con’s son, Liam, takes his leave from us on Committee having served with distinction in various roles since 2012. We thank you Liam for what you have achieved during your time in office. 

I would sincerely like to thank Captain Chris Collins who put his faith in me, and brought me onto Committee in 2012 and I have since had the great pleasure to work with Captains’ James Ormonde, Michael Quirke, Liam Hartnett and Declan McCarthy.  Presidents’ Ollie Creedon, Sean Coyne, Denis Cronin and Arthur Hanley also attended and added invaluable experience to our Committee meetings over the years and I can only hope that I have retained some of the knowledge that these wise men have imparted, during that time. 

I thank the Management Council of the Club for their efforts on our behalf and hope to make a valuable contribution on behalf of all Club members in that forum for 2018. 

I would sincerely like to thank the Mens’ Committee for their unwavering dedication to our Club, and personally for your support over the years. I sincerely welcome Ian Cronin to Committee for 2018 and wish to thank James Curran who has agreed to be Vice-Captain for the year ahead, along with Hon. Sec. Tommy Barry, Hon. Treasurer Harry O’Neill, Competition Sec. Tommy Galvin, Handicap Sec. Donal O’Sullivan, PRO Victor Mulcahy, Junior Officer John Curtin, and Committee members Michael Maher & Eddie O’Sullivan. 

I wish to sincerely thank Declan McCarthy who put his heart and soul into this Club since 2012 and congratulate him on his record of achievement over the years, and in particular, I must say that his year as Captain has been exemplary. This man has worked tirelessly on behalf of all of us over many years and it was my pleasure to have worked alongside him over that time, and very much look forward to more of the same in 2018. 

To my fellow officers, Lady Captain Sheila Crowley, President Jack Buckley, Girls’ Captain Mairead Martin and Boys’ Captain Kieran O’Connor, I most sincerely wish you all the best for the year ahead, and with a little luck, a pennant or two might come our way, in this our 125th year in existance.

Yours in golf
Derry MCarthy

Honorary Life Membership awarded to Mairead Martin

At a special reception in the club on Sunday evening (8th October), Mairead Martin was awarded Honorary Life Membership following her Senior Cap for Ireland this year when she played in the Home Internationals.   The reception was attended by her family, President Breda Duggan, Lady Captain Amy, Captain Declan, Committee Members and Club Members.  Mairead began playing golf at the young age of 11 in 2011, with a handicap of 36, and finished  2016 +1.  She has played across Europe from the Czech Republic to Galway Bay, and from Norway to Ontario, Canada.  Mairead has a brilliant playing record at national and international level, and at Club level she won her matches in the Senior Foursome Ladies All-Ireland winning team in 2014 and again with the Ladies Senior Cup All Ireland winning Team in 2017.  Mairead played by invitation at the Duke of York Trophy in September 2017.  She is currently playing of +2 and we wish her continued success in her golfing career.


Senior Foursomes’ All-Ireland Victory!

A month after Killarney women defeated Royal Portrush Club to claim a first ILGU Senior Cup in their history, the club has now won the Senior Foursomes title.  The All Ireland Final was held at Malone Golf Club, Belfast (28th-30th September).  The Senior Foursomes match was suspended after darkness on Friday, already on extra holes.   The final match between Killarney & Roscommon was still undecided after 20 holes.  In the end it went Killarney’s way when it resumed at 10.00 am on Saturday with Eimear O’Donnell holing a five footer for par on the 21st, to give Killarney the AIG Senior Foursomes title.

Killarney team Pairings were Mary Sheehy & Fidelma O’Connor, Deidre Prendergast & Anne Moyhihan Rudden, Eimear O’Donnell & Amy Arthur.

Our congratulations to the team, manager and supporters.

Ladies Senior Cup team are All-Ireland Champions!

Royal Curragh Golf Club was host to the All Ireland Ladies  2017 Senior Cup finals 25-26 August in  which Killarney proved victorious over Royal Portrush with a 4:1 victory.   Killarney lined out the same team that beat The Island in Friday’s semi final.   The Munster side made a strong start  as Mairead, Valerie, and Kelly,  all went 2 up early on in their matches.  After the turn, Killarney were still leading in the first 3 matches.   Valerie Clancy was the first result in as she finished 4&3 over Gemma McClenaghan, followed shortly after by Kelly Brotherton who also sealed a 4&3 victory.  With Royal Portrush up in both the last two games, it was all down to the first match  in which Mairead Martin was now 2 up with 2 holes to play.  With a birdie on the 17th the match was won, and Killarney were crowned Senior Cup Champions for the first time in the Club’s history.  Congratulations to our Victorious Ladies Senior Cup Team and to their Manager Mary Geaney.

Final Results Killarney (4) Royal Portrush (1) (killarney names first)   Mairead Martin beat Lucy Simpson 2&1,Valerie Clancy beat Gemma McClenaghan 4&3, Kelly Brotherton beat Naoimh Quigg 4&3, Mary Sheehy halved with Emma Forbes (called in) Claire Keating halved with Hannah Henderson (called in).

Competition Notice from the Ladies Committee

To all lady members, please support us in the smooth running of competitions by

(1) avoiding slow play – players should always keep up with the group ahead.

(2) observing the rule of golf 6.3 which relates to being ready to tee off at your booked tee time.  Playing partners should proceed at the correct time even if one of the players is delayed.  Failure to do so will result in a penalty for all three players infringing the rule (details of rule 6.3 are outlined on the ladies notice board).

Thank you for your participation and support of competitions.
