A week of mixed emotions and mixed weather!
Ladies AIG Intermediate Competition, Cahir Park v Fermoy Ladies was played on a wet and windy Bank Holiday Monday. Caitlin Fitzgerald, Michelle Keating, Joanne Quaid, Kathleen Lonergan and Caroline Maher battled hard but a place in Munster Final was not to be. Fermoy Ladies won 3/2 with the final two matches reaching 19th and 18th Holes respectively. Team Managers Mary Lyons and Cathy O’Gorman were very disappointed and thanked the Players and Panel and wished Fermoy Ladies continued success. The Cahir Park team tried valiantly and thank you Ladies for all your efforts. To represent the Club is an honour. Well done.
