MASS FOR DECEASED MEMBERS
Our annual mass for deceased members took place last Friday night in the Goldcoast Hotel which was attended by a large number of members and their families. The mass celebrant was Fr. Ned Hassett P.P. Abbeyside. He was assisted on the night by Captain David, both Presidents John and Anne and Frank Mulvihill who read out the list of our departed friends. We thank Bob O’Brien for organising this special night also thanks to the Hotel staff for the refreshments that were served following mass.
We send best wishes and a speedy recovery to Lady Captain Elaine who is missed by all at the club. Hope to see her out and about again real soon.

The league is in full swing with a lot of activity in the 10 hole league which is now gone into the fourth round with some fabulous scores returned. With the weather taking a turn for the worst again there wasn’t much golf played during the week. Hopefully the rain will clear over the coming weeks to get us back on the fairways again!!
Wishing all teams the very best of luck and hoping for some settled weather in the coming weeks, congrats and well done to the winners so far. Enjoy!!

Due to the inclement weather it was decided to meet up and have lunch in the Goldcoast. Thanks a mill to the staff for the beautiful food and excellent service, everything was delicious!!
After a very informative couple of hours discussing news and current affairs, we decided we had the world settled!! It was a wonderful afternoon in great company! Thanks a mill to Anne for her organisational skills, it’s very important to keep the group in touch!
MASS FOR DECEASED MEMBERS
Our annual Mass for deceased members and friends took place on Friday 9th February in the Goldcoast Hotel celebrated by Fr. Ned Hassett. The names of all the deceased members were read out and prayed for during the service with a few new additions again this year.
Refreshments were served after Mass where everybody had a chance of a catch-up with members who are no longer playing golf. Fr. Ned did the rounds and chatted to everybody regaling the attributes of our dear departed Fr. Jerry which ensued in lots of laughter.
Our Handicap secretary and committee will be meeting again in Feb/March 2024 for ongoing review. To date, all decisions were unanimous.
NEW MEMBER DEALS 2024
Ladies, if you had ever thought of taking up golf, now is the time to do it, our Lady Captain Elaine or any committee member would be delighted to take out potential members and showcase our beautiful course which is blessed with unrivalled mountain and coastal scenery!!
