Last weekend showed the true warmth and heart that Cill Dara is renowned for. Our friend Bernie Marum is going through a tough time and a fundraiser was held to show our appreciation for her. A scramble was held on Fri, Sat and Sunday and Paddy Dawson, Alex Dick and Danny Comerford provided the prizes. Teams turned up and played as the organisers hoped and a very successful weekend finished with a presentation to Bernie and prizes handed out to the Mens, Ladies & Mixed Teams first and second. The warmest wishes to all involved, a good thing was done.

Winter Golf is fast approaching and in its usual fashion, the Mick Scully sponsored Winter League is kicking off on the 1st of November. Held over 5 weeks it will be the best 4 weeks scores that will be calculated and brought through to the Shotgun finish on the 12th of December (weather permitting). There will be 4 categories and a final prize for the best individual scores tally. It is open to Men & Ladies, of every ability – one score per week minimum will keep you in the hunt!. The sheet is up in the hall at the office. Any questions, please ask!
Last Sunday night a lingering question was answered – who is the vice captain? Gerry duly obliged and announced Mr Niall O’Donnell as his Vice Captain for the year ahead. Maria had already announced Ms Marguerite Rowan as her Vice Captain a few days before. Well done to all involved – Cill Dara is in very safe hands for the 2022 golfing year and going foward
