Great congratulations to our Diageo Mixed team, managed by Renagh Murphy, who won the final against Dundrum by 3 ½ to 1 ½ on Sunday. The Cup and Pennant were brought back to the Club last night, and the cup filled by Liam Duffy to celebrate the win.
A nice thing to know was that our Mixed Foursomes team lost only 1 match out of 9 in all GUI and Diageo mixed competitions during the year, the only loss being in the final of the Irish Mixed Foursomes. Last Sunday’s final was a bit of a family affair with Tony & Ellie playing on our side and Tony’s mum, Joan, playing for the Dundrum team which was managed by Kevin, Tony’s brother. I’m sure they are still talking.
The team on the day were Mary Crowe & Patrick Ryan, Ellie O’Sullivan & Tony O’Sullivan, Mary Whelan & Maurice Power and Joe Kinahan & David Charles, Yvonne Daly Ryan & Paddy Crowe. The reserves were Renagh Murphy & Eddie Stapleton and Ann Kinane Creamer & Dan McKenna. Others involved through the campaign were Sean Long, Aileen Carroll, and Ann Crotty. Well done to all.
