BALLYKISTEEN

Last weekend we held the 4th Colm Whelan Memorial competition and the blustery conditions reflected in the scores returned. The winners this year were Denis Ryan and Sarah Toomey with a fabulous score of 58nett followed in 2nd place by Alan Dunphy and Willie Hartnett with 64nett. 3rd place went to John Hughes and Tony Browne with 65nett (after countback). Denis retains his title from last year but changed his partner from mother Mary Toomey last year to daughter Sarah this year. The presentation of prizes will take place along with the prize giving for the GVM Trophy in May in the Ballyk bar
