We got our main competitive season off the ground over the weekend with the Moloney Foursomes over a reduced course due to Wednesday night’s downpour.
Eight pairs qualified for matchplay with the ever reliable pairing of Michael Fitzpatrick and Peter Crosse leading the way on 54.6.
Scoring was quite hot with the eighth qualifier making the cut on 58.4.
Michael Fitzpatrick and Peter Crosse v Michael Keaty and Pat Merrigan
Jackie Nelligan and Joe Grimes v J.P. Meehan and William Hyde
Seamus Ryan and John B. Ryan v Fergal Lonergan and Gerry Kelly
Eamon Mulcahy and Gerry O’Donoghue v Trevor Flynn and Adrian O’Donoghue
The winner was Donal Bradshaw on 32 pts.
Next weekend sees the first major singles of the year - the Coman Cup- with eight players to qualify for matchplay.
Tommy Flynn and Gertrude Gilligan; Kathleen O’Dwyer and Breda Doherty; Kathleen Kinane and Kay Delaney.
