Sliabh Feilim Golf Society: Sliabh Feilim Golf Society held its Captains Prize recently at Tipperary Golf Club in beautiful sunshine. Congratulations to our Captain John O Dea who had wonderful support on the day. There were forty four golfers present. I would like to compliment Tipperary Golf Course staff on the top class condition of the course and likewise the catering staff for the way they looked after us. We had a fantastic group of golfers out on the day including ten juniors who really enjoyed their day’s golf.

I don’t think there’s another society with so many young golfers and I hope it might encourage others to join.

The Captain’s Prize is always keenly contested and this year was no different. When the cards were finally checked there were three players on forty one points and it took a count back on the back six holes to get a winner. So the winner of the 2013 Captain’s Prize was Declan Ryan, in second was Eamonn Mullane, and third was Pat Hayes. We had numerous prizes on the day, including Category prizes and junior prizes. I would like to thank all who helped to make the day a success and the O Dwyer family for their hospitality. Our next outing is the President’s Prize at Shannon Golf Club on 15th September. All members will be contacted prior to the outing.

Claire Keating: With great pride we wish Claire Keating the best of luck next Sunday in Croke Park as she represents Cappamore Camogie Club on the Limerick Intermediate Camogie panel who take on Galway in the All Ireland Final. Even though she is still only a Minor she is the sub goalie on the Limerick panel. At minor level she is a very versatile player and can be drafted into any position on the field when her team is in trouble. She is a noted prolific scorer in the underage competitions both for club and county. So Sunday 15th September is a big day for Claire, a big day for Cappamore and a big day for Limerick. A supporters bus will travel to Dublin on the day so check with Camogie Club officials if there is still seats available.
