Here, There and Everywhere…

It was difficult to keep up with the numerous Interclub Competitions being played by Cahir Park Teams over the last two weeks.  Some matches were at Home, but most were Away venues.  And there was losses, wins, trauma, and ecstatic joy.

The Men’s Fred Perry Team lost to Thurles.  The Jimmy Bruen Team won as did the Pierce  Purcell Team v Templemore 3-1, with the last match won on the 18th.   Second Rounds beckon within the next two weeks and further details in next week’s report.  Congratulations to all Teams and Managers

Cobh G.C. in the next round.


Ladies Matches and Results 

Cahir Park Ladies Minor Foursomes Team played Tipperary Ladies on the beautiful Tipperary Golf Club Course on Bank Holiday Monday.  Both Clubs won 2 matches each and therefore,  sudden death playoff followed with Cahir Park losing by a putt on the 19th.  The Cahir Park team of Pauline Mulcahy and Bernie English,  Geraldine Lyons and Geraldine Cooney, Noreen Hally and Anne Walsh,  Breeda Wall and Marie Devitt enjoyed great games with a strong Tipperary team and wish Tipperary Ladies success in the next round.   Team Managers for Cahir Park,  Miriam Halley and Deirdre O’Neill are truly appreciated for all the work they put in with the Team.  Better luck next year.


Revive Active

Our Revive Active Women’s Munster Fourball Team played Faithlegg G.C., also on Bank Holiday Monday.   With two matches played in Cahir Park and three away at Faithlegg,  the Waterford Ladies proved to be the stronger team and are wished success in their next round.  Thank you to Cahir Park Ladies and Team Manager Chris Noonan.  Again, better luck for 2025.

Find the Golf Ball 

Many are wondering is the Golf Ball out of bounds because it seems lost in the Clubhouse!

Two more draws and no sign of the elusive card with the golf ball.   However, Gerry Rogers went home on Saturday 11th May with a box of Pro V1s after his card, number 7 was turned and revealed this super prize.  Congratulations Gerry.   On Captains Drive-in Day,  the previous Sunday 5th May,  Maurice Quinlan won the weekly prize of €20, having turned his card number 41.  There are not many more cards to turn, so keep playing.   Someone will win the jackpot soon.  Value next Saturday is €1,240.

Thanks to everyone who support the Draw and thank you to John Hughes and Team for the weekly dedication to running the Draw.
