There was no joy for either Douglas or Lee Valley in Clonmel yesterday at the Munster Finals of the Irish Junior Foursomes. Hope were high for a second Cork win in Clonmel, after Muskerry won the Fred Daly Trophy the day before. Clonmel was a lot wetter and windier than it was on Monday, adding to the challenge of the tight tree lined course.
Lee Valley were out first and they were up against Faithlegg. Mel Deasy paired up with Seamus Lordan while Keelan McCarthy partnered with Sean Deasy. The Cork side battled hard but in the end they lost out to a strong team from Faithlegg. Douglas too suffered at the hands of Kilrush. Mark Hill & Sean Reddy Continue reading

There was no joy for Mallow or Blarney today as both lost out to Castletroy in the Irish Junior Foursomes. Blarney took Castletroy all the way to the 18th green before losing out to the Limerick side. Blarney were five down before the turn and narrowed the deficit to 2 holes on the 11th. Castletroy stretched their lead again through the back nine but Blarney weren’t finished and took the match all they way to the 18th green. Castletroy just needed a half and Blarney’s delicate chip for birdie got close but didn’t go in meaning Castletroy Continue reading
