  • Congratulations to Shane Redmond from Channonrock who won the National under-16 Strokeplay championships at St Bridgets...

High drama, superb scoring and a result that appeared most unlikely after 18 holes but that is just what we got this afternoon in St. Bridgets. Shane Redmond (Chanonrock) added a superb 44 to his opening 50 to emerge victorious on a score of 94. He was helped by a final nine of 21 aided by a hole in one on 16. Just one stroke behind in second place was Luke Heeney (Bellewestown) who faltered after his excellent opening 44 and was only able to add a 51 to finish on 95. In third place by virtue of a better final 18 was Roy O’Neill (Bagenalstown) on 98. The winner of the 10-13 section was David Howard (Pfizer) 100.

Shane has had a remarkable year so far, he has won the Leinster under-16 title, represented Louth on both under-16 and at senior level and has now won the National title. He is definetly a name to watch for in the future and we wish him all the best with his game.

Play got underway at Old County course in Dublin 12 in glorious conditions at midday with six counties represented & all teams primed and ready to contest the battle. Scoring was set to prove difficult on fast, drying greens and with several testing pitches scattered throughout the course in ricky windy conditions.

Kildare and Meath commenced proceedings with the opening scotch foursomes pairings. It was the Royal County who got the better of things, Luke Heeney and Donovan Sheridan in the first pairing combining for a 50. Cathal Dardis and Darren Fox also posted a good score of 51 helping Meath to the early lead at 6 under par. Offaly and Westmeath were the next counties to the tee and matched each other evenly throughout the foursomes.The Faithful County combined for a 3 over par total at the turn, while their neighbours Westmeath posted 8 over par.

Reigning All Ireland Champions and hosts Dublin, faced the holders Louth it the final groupings. The scoring was great from both teams. Daryl and Aaron McDonagh were first in with a best of the day 48 that was later matched by Dublin pair Claire Keatinge and Ross O’Reilly. It was the 49 from Brendan Lawlor and Mark Lenehen that made the difference. Their score along with Shane Redmond & Liam Mc Aufields 52 gave the Louth lads a slender four shot advantage at the turn on -13 with Dublin on -9.
With only four shots between the teams it was all to play for between Louth and Dublin. However, with the lead in hand, the Louth team capitalised on any hesitation from the Dubs. While Dublin’s scores were solid but not spectacular and sometimes on the wrong side of par, Louth had the likes of Brendan Lawlor and Shane Redmond producing a pair of 49’s along with solid performances from the three debutants Daryl mc Donagh, Liam Mc Aufield & Mark Lenehan the title was Louth’s for the second year in a row with a 469, with Dublin taking second place on 490 & Meath third on 511.
Great credit is due to Old County, fantastic hosts on the day. They provided a great course for the players and promoted a great atmosphere among players, mentors and supporters alike.

Congratulations to Shane Redmond wins 2nd Leinster Championship title.

  • New National Intermediate Strokplay Champion...

Congratulations to Danny Clinton from Cement Pitch & Putt Club who won the National Intermediate Strokeplay championship at RGSC on July 28th.With the final 18 holes underway the feeling in RGSC was that 36 hole leader Tom McMorrow (Lucan) would be very difficult to catch as the combination of his four stroke lead coupled with his rock solid play over the initial 36 holes made the task seem almost impossible. However a combination of a number of dropped shots by Tom McMorrow coupled with an excellent final 18 score of 48 from Daniel Clinton (Cement) gave Daniel a winning final total of 152. In second place was James Devonshire (Fermoy) who carded a final 18 of 49 to give him an overall figure of 154 and second place by virtue of a better final 18, in third place was Ian Leech (St. Annes) who had a final 52 to also finish on 154.

Lange watches store would certainly be one of them. Nice clean design rolex replica and one of the best watches store to date, but hard to endorse for the above reasons. This rolex replica sale that the escapement receives an equal amount of energy each time regardless of how fully wound the mainspring barrels are. Unfortunately, replica watches uk seems like it will be quite hard to appreciate all this finishing since the replica watches is largely covered. And with a very limited annual production that maxes out at about 2017 timepieces per year, Zannetti focuses much of its imagination on the aesthetic details that make each watch a rarity. These details include highly decorated dials that may take well over a month to perfect, or exquisitely engraved replica watches and cases that rival some of the best. A nice looking watch, but I think I would have to pass on it, as I feel there are too many other more interesting replica watches at that price point.
