Our annual mass for deceased members took place on Thursday 2nd February in the Gold Coast Hotel, our celebrant was Fr Ned Hassett PP Abbeyside. We were joined by a large number of members and their families. As mass began, we prayed for the speedy recovery of Fr Jerry Condon PP Stradbally who has been our celebrant for the past number of years. The readings were delivered by our two Captains Michael and Rosie, our prayers of the Faithful by our Lady President Ella Fitzgerald and Past Captain John White. With mass completed we retired to the restaurant for tea and sandwiches. We would like to thank Fr Hassett, the management and staff of the hotel for the beautiful food, and all those that helped to make the mass so special and to all that attended.

MOORINGS WINTER LEAGUE
The weather has been fantastic over the last two weeks with on-course conditions improving on a daily basis encouraging our members to the fairways again! There has been a massive shake-up in the team rankings with Powerscourt captained by Mary Dunbar now taking the lead closely followed by Lahinch captained by Ann Raher.
It’s all to play for between these two teams, so I’m sure Mary and Ann will be keeping a close eye on the incoming scores for the next couple of weeks!
Well done to all who have put in a tremendous effort to date! Closing date for the league is Friday 24th Feb
