Outing to Thurles: Galbally Golf Society travelled to Thurles recentlt for our fourth outing of the year & also to play for the prestigious Mike Sheehan Memorial Cup. Last Saturday was the 18th time we have played for the Mike Sheehan Cup. Mike was a founding member of the society but was killed tragically in a car accident in December 2004. A great guy & still sadly missed by his family & friends. 24 golfers took to the fairways on a nice but windy day. Course was in great shape which is why Thurles is always a favourite for the golf society.
Results were as follows: There were 2 birdies on the par 3s with Denis Ryan & Seamie Morrissey picking up €23 each. Longest drive went to Paddy Ryan. In 3rd place was Joe McGrath playing off 17 with 37 Pts, 2nd went to Adrian Byron playing off 11 with 37 Pts (better back 9 than Joe). The winner was Mike Mansell from Ballylanders and a good friend of Mike Sheehan back in the day, playing off 24 with 40 Pts.
