had a 4/3 away win. Also away Paul Deegan/Bill O'Connell lost 1up and TonyO'Mahony/John O'Neill lost 2/1. Congratulations

Another nail biting finish against Lucan  on Friday the 16th.Stackstown are now into the Leinster Quarter Final  and play Greystones before the 9th July  .As usual Liam Tyrell and Anne O'Connor  won 5 and 4 followed by a  new pairing of  of Peter Horn and Rebecca Rush who finished strongly to win on 19. In the 3rd Home Match Paddy Murphy and Mary Grogan came back from 2down with 2 to play to level the match on 18 when they were called in because Enda O'Halloran and Fiona Neill won 2and1 in Lucan.  The second away pair of Brian Flanagan and Mary Brennan  went down fighting.

We had three matches away in the third round against Elm Park.Brian Flanagan and Mary Brennan coasted to a 4 and 2 victory, Enda O'Halloran and Fiona Neill went down fighting while Paddy Murphy and Delores Nulty lost on the 19th (Paddy shot 74 in the morning to win the Junior Scratch Cup in Stackstown). At home Liam Tyrell and Ann O'Connor continued their superb form in this competition and closed out their match on the 14th for a 5 and 4 win.The pressure was on the final pairing of Larry O'Connor and Mary Grogan who again got off to a slow start going 3 down after 9.Wins on 10,13 and 15 levelled the match only to go 1 down again after 16,the 17 th was halved and a regulation par on 18 was good enough to take the match to the 19th.A large group of supporters had gathered around the 1st green and spurred on by the great show of support Mary holed from 4 feet for par to win the match.

Next Lucan Before 18th June 3 away again. 

The 2nd round was played on Sat. 22nd April V Dun Laoghaire. This proved to be a very tough challenge. The Dun  Laoghaire team playing in Stackstown lined out with men playing off handicaps of +2 , +1 and 4.Paddy Murphy and Delores Nulty playing in the first match found themselves behind early but fought hard to stay in the match. Three down with three to play they used their shot on 16 to reduce the deficit to two. A superb long put by Paddy on 17 sent us up 18 one down. Winning the 18th squared the match and sent them into extra holes.The 19th was halved and on the 20th Delores sank an 8 ft downhill right to left putt to win the match. In the 2nd match Liam Tyrell and Ann O'Connor played their usual steady golf to win on the 17th. In the 3rd match Larry O'Connor and Mary Grogan were in a very close match with never more than one hole in it until going two up after 15. A birdie four on the 16th by Dul Laoghaire reduced the match to one hole. The 17th was halved in fours and a par on 18 was good enough to secure victory. In Dun Laoghaire Brian Flanagan and Mary Brennan came from 4 down to be all square playing 18 when called in. Enda O'Halloran and Fiona Neil were also level coming to 18 when they were called in.This was a great win against a very strong side and the closness of the matches can only help us in the next match giving us the confidence to grind out a result.

1st round played on Sunday 26th March V Old Conna. Won 3.5 to 1.5- Having three matches away this was a great result .Brian Flanagan and Dymphna Donegan secured the away point while Liam Tyrell and Ann O' Connor had a comfortable 4 and three win at home .Securing the second home win proved a little more difficult. Larry O'Connor and Mary Grogan went three down after nine and had to dig deep to level the match after 14 .The last 4 holes were halved and the match went up 19 which was halved. A great tee shot from Mary reminiscent of her shot to the 4th tie hole in Milltown last year landed 10 ft from the pin and a three was good enough to win the match..Meanwhile in Old Conna Enda O'Halloran and Fiona Neil were playing the 19th (not the bar) having come back from 4 down early on .The third away pairing of Garret Sweeney and Mary lost to a very strong home pair.
