It was a 1-2 for Kinsale as Keith Fitzpatrick took second place with a 71.  Cobh’s Gavin Lynch won the nett prize.  Mark McGroarty won the Junior Scratch Cup in style with a level par 72 enough to win the title by two shots.  Monkstown’s Ken Treacy was second on 74 and Eoin Wilson was third with a 75.  Aaron Ward (Blarney) won the nett prize with a 69, beating Jack Ryan (Monkstown) on the countback.
