Castletroy ladies celebrate All-Ireland Junior Cup glory

CASTLETROY Golf Club is this week celebrating their success in claiming the coveted AIG All-Ireland Junior Cup title at the AIG Ladies Cups and Shields National finals at Dundalk Golf Club on Saturday.

Castletroy proved too strong for the Castle Golf Club in the final on a 4-1 scoreline, having earlier defeated Wexford in the semi-final.

The Limerick ladies came out in force and denied Castle a second consecutive AIG All-Ireland pennant in the final.

Castletroy's Fiona Corbett secured a 3 & 2 win in the top game, Ethna Leonard swiftly followed with a 5&4 victory and Sarah Vaughan triumphed over Ger Moran 5 & 4 also.

The other two matches were called in and Castletroy will add the AIG All-Ireland Junior Cup pennant to their 2009 Challenge Cup and 2013 Junior Foursomes collection.
