- The Junior golf team of Marcus O’Grady (3A), Robert Sweetman (1B), and Jack Conlon (2C) represented the College in the recent Leinster Schools qualifying competition in Delgany GC, Co. Wicklow. The boys performed admirably on a tricky and hilly 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 for their huge effort on the day.


- The Senior golf team of Samuel Inglis (6A), Stephen McMahon (6C), Aaron Hillery-Nolan (4C), Charlie Quinn (5D), and

Michael Foley (6C) represented the College in the recent Leinster Schools qualifying competition in Woodbrook GC, Bray, Co. Wicklow. Playing in breezy and often gusty conditions, 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. We were 9 shots from qualifying.

I would like to thank the five players, plus parents who assisted with giving lifts to and from Woodbrook GC. A special thanks to Miriam Hillery, Mark Nolan and Jim Quinn for their assistance on the day.
