Golf News


The Senior Golf team - Andrew Fraser, Sam Inglis, Stephen McMahon, Aaron Hillery-Nolan, and Michael Foley -

represented the College in the recent Leinster Schools qualifying competition in Woodenbridge GC, Co. Wicklow. Playing in often torrential rain and thereafter, very wet fairways and greens, the boys performed as well as could be expected. Unfortunately, the team score (best four of five, gross scores) wasn’t enough to qualify to the Leinster finals. I would like to thank the five players, plus parents who assisted with giving lifts to and from Woodenbridge GC. A special thanks to Cliona and Miriam Hillery for their assistance and good humour on the day.


The Junior Golf team - Aaron Hillery-Nolan, Marcus O’Grady, and Charlie Kennedy represented the College in the recent Leinster Schools qualifying competition in Balcarrick GC, Co. Dublin. The boys performed admirably on a tricky little course which was quite sodden in places due to the recent rainfall. However, they represented the College well. Unfortunately, the team score (best two of three, stableford scores) wasn’t enough to qualify to the Leinster finals. I would like to thank the three players, plus Mark Nolan, who not only assisted with giving lifts to and from Balcarrick GC, but who also stayed and accompanied the players during their rounds.
