At Thursdays A.G.M. of the Ladies Club, the new Lady Captain, Sandra McMonagle took office. An exciting year ahead awaits Sandra, as the Centenary Year of our golf club is 2013 and so many events have been planned in which she will play a major part.
Alongside Sandra, is the new Lady Vice Captain Catherine Cooke-Harkin. Working tirelessly with the juniors and instrumental in encouraging new junior girls to the club, Catherine will also retain her role as the Ladies Club Junior Convenor. Best wishes to both ladies from everyone in the Ladies Club and may you enjoy your year ahead.
There wasn’t a wrinkle in sight when the birthday girl scooped the Christmas Hamper on her special day. Mary Murrays candles were fully aglow and she kept them lit on the back 9, to bring in the winning score of 35 points. Close behind, was her playing partner Celine Bradley who came runner up with 34 points. Marian O’Sullivan, never far away, came 3rd with 33 points. The front 9 was won by Eileen Harvey 18 points and the back 9 by Triona Daly 16 points. The rest of the field were there or thereabouts, allegedly. The Lady Captain -in waiting – was spotted hovering dangerously over the 10th drain but managed a superb save, alas the camera was not to hand.
Bagging her second turkey, Eileen Keating came in with 19 points, with a shot deducted B.O.T. to secure her bird. Bridget McClafferty, so close so often, has started her tentative steps on the turkey trot with the chocolates and wine, taking runner up with 18 points.

In order for the caterers to prepare, there is a list in the locker room if you would kindly put your name down. As usual, the ladies will enjoy the party in style with a wee tune or two from Gerry. Of course as a natural soprano, I have been brushing up on my top notes to delight your ears.
