Gold Coast Golf Club Notes 29th April 2018:
Friary Team beaten in All Ireland Final:
Great effort by Friary Boys just come up short. Despite the terrible weather and play being suspended for a while as the greens flooded, the Friary team went on to defeat the well fancied RBAI team from Ulster in a very tight semi-final on Tuesday last in Monkstown. However it was not to be their day as the Connaught champions scraped through in a very close fought final. This team can be very proud of their achievements and we say well done to all involved. The teams consisted of Michael Lenihan (Gold Coast), Jake O ‘Riordan (Dungarvan), Daniel Raher (Dungarvan), Michael Troy(Dungarvan) and Seanie Lenihan (Gold Coast) and Barry Morrisssey Dungarvan).
