Vice Captains Prize Presentation from Gerry King to Captain Herbie Wilkins (2021) Many thanks to Herbie for his 5 years of service to Cill Dara GC. 3 Years as Treasurer, Vice Captain and Captain.
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.

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
