May Day has been celebrated in Ireland since pagan times as the feast of Bealtaine. Traditionally, bonfires were lit to mark the coming of summer and to banish the long nights of winter.Our Captain Peter Kermath has undoubtedly lit the bonfires and banished the winter blues by coming out victorious again with a fine score of net 58. Well done Captain, we can hear the handicap secretary's pencil sharpener working overtime!
In second place it was nearly a case of the early bird catches the worm with Joe Greene scoring net 63, close but on this occasion, no cigar. Good score none the less Joe, congratulations.
Sunday saw the first medal competition of 2015 and the weather changed more than a politicians opinions prior to an election. The brave golfers who took to the course in their numbers battled rain, hailstones, wind and finally the sun came out and with it some impressive scores. In first place was Stephen McCabe with a net 53, a great score Stephan and a medal for the cabinet. Category prizes were as follows: Cat 1 Peadar Gill, Cat 2 Peter Callaghan, Cat 3 Finbar O'Rielly, well done all.
The timesheet for next week is in the clubhouse, and will be posted on the website as well.
