Ashbourne North Leinster Mixed Champions !!

 

 

Ashbourne North Leinster Mixed team bridged a gap of 11 years when they succeeded in winning the North Leinster Mixed final at Headfort G.C. yesterday. In A hard fought match they emerged victorious against South County Meath G.C.
The tie was finely balanced 2/1 in Ashbourne’s favour with our final 2 matches going down the 15th & 16th holes, up in 1 & down in the other, so it was all to play for. The expectations of the massive support from Ashbourne club members now rested on their shoulders as the excitement grew.
It is a pity there were no videos cameras to see Kay’s 7 iron shot onto the 16th green. It was magic & while it was Billy who sank the winning putt, it was truly a magnificent team effort that got them over the line. As Kevin put it (no pun intended) “It was a solid performance by all the team”Team: Mervyn Miller & Mary Power: Martin Farrell & Mary Bannon:
Brian Caulfield & Helen Donoghue: President Billy & Kay Doyle:
Ger Baker & Captain Pauline.
Subs: Barry McMahon & Aine Lee

 

Many congratulations to Jackie & Kevin Barry who put in sterling work in guiding their team to victory. Their dedication all through the campaign & their attention to detail in all aspects of team arrangements a team selection was immense. We have found a great talent in our club.

We wish to thank most sincerely Ken Walshe Windsor Raheny Nissan for his very generous sponsorship of the club tee shirts which looked so well on all team members. His advice at the presentation last Sunday was well heeded. “Play the game & not the occasion”

Many thanks also to Capt Pat, Vice capt Brian & Vice capt Winnie who led an amazing turnout of club members in support of the team. The sea of club colours all around the course was heartening & much appreciated by all.

The victorious team led by Kevin & Jackie returned to the club holding the cup aloft.Known as the Callaghan Cup it will take pride of place in our trophy cabinet.

President Billy, Captains Pat & Pauline wish to add their congratulations to Kevin & Jackie & to all who participated in bringing home this trophy during their tenure.
