Golf Classic    Na Gaeil’s Annual Golf Classic was held in O’Mahony’s Point in Killarney on Friday last with a shot gun start at 9am and 2pm.

With over forty teams taking part the day was thoroughly enjoyed by all the participants who played in breezy but excellent weather conditions.

The competition was very keen especially for the longest drive and the nearest pin and of course everyone was hoping that they might be lucky enough to get a hole in one on the 18th green.

Kevin Lucey, a member of An Ríocht Stonecraft team was the winner of the Nearest Pin competition while Darren Mulchare of the Slattery’s Fuels team won the Longest Drive competition.

Unfortunately there was no winner of the Hole in One competition, the prize being a Toyota Yaris Hybrid car sponsored by Kellihers Toyota, Garage Rathass, Tralee.

First prize was won by the Airmount Engineering team of Ben O’Hare, Paul McElligott, Eddie Kiely and Ross Trow. Second prize was won by a team from Na Gaeil comprising of Liam Kingston, Barry Murphy, Eddie Sheehy and club chairperson Tim Lynch Jnr.

All the golfers enjoyed a delicious meal in the clubhouse at O’Mahony’s Point after they had completed their round. We extend a big thank you to all the golfers that took part on the day, to all the companies that sponsored teams and tee boxes and also to those that sponsored the prizes for the winners.
