LADIES MARK BLOOM TEAM
Manager: Joan O'Brien
Huge congratulations to Joan O'Brien and her Bloom Cup team on their semi-final win yesterday at Rathfarnham GC. Having secured a 3-0 lead after the first leg at home the team needed just half a point to progress to the final. Sheila Gillick and Joan Moore secured victory with a super 5/3 win. This meant the rest of the team line up completed by Deirdre Ryan/Margaret McMahon and Trudy Doyle/Sinead Murphy were called in also up in their matches at the time. We will now play Edmonstown in the final - date to be confirmed.
This is a great start to our semi-final season which continues next weekend. First up on Saturday are the Ladies Junior Cup team who will play Black Bush GC in Seapoint GC at 1pm in the Leinster semi final. Best of luck to manager Ciara Leech, players and caddies.
On Sunday 6th at 8.50am our Irish Mixed Team take on Mount Juliet GC at Millicent GC in the Leinster semi final with the final to take place at 3pm that afternoon. Again best of luck to managers Joan Moore and Larry O'Connor and all the players.

Stackstown Ladies took part in Senior Foursomes Qualifying on Sunday 28th May 2017, in Craddockstown, Co Kildare. Stackstown were one of 10 teams hoping claim one of only 4 prestigious spots. The three Stackstown pairings took to the tee at 2.12 p.m. watched by Team Manager, Deirdre Ryan & Lady Captain Mary Grogan. Barbara Kelly & Mairead Cronin led the way, followed by Kate O'Connor & Stackstown debutante Hannah McInerney. Anne O'Connor & Mary Horn completed the line up. The teams each played a full round of foursomes golf and submitted their cards to the ILGU rep. They took our best two cards. The team, manager and LC went inside for a meal at table 13, unlucky for some(!). The ILGU rep announced the qualifying clubs, first through were Naas, then Lucan, then Stackstown! A cheer came up from table 13, Dee toasted the players, reserves Rebecca Rush & Marian White & supporters Marian White and Ann McCormack. Next up for Stackstown Senior Foursomes Ladies will be matchplay on 1st / 2nd July in either Grange or Ashbourne, to be confirmed.
