Des Flanagan – Mixed Foursomes Finals

We played the Des Flanagan Mixed foursome finals today at the wonderful Old County venue. The weather was kind and the day ran very smoothly.

The competition itself is a tough format – there are no hiding places in foursomes and mistakes are plenty. The winners typically are those who make the least amount of mistakes on the day!

After a hugely emotional and deserving tribute yesterday in Lucan for Dave Hayden, it was fitting that we were back at the club where it all started for him. Indeed, Dave was the topic all day with great stories and memories being shared among the players.

After a minute silence for Dave, Old County’s President Paul Mcgreal got the presentation on the way with a wonderful introduction and reference to the great player and administrator Des Flanagan. He then handed over to our Chairman and Secretary Breda Boyle to announce the winners.

Overall Winners: Kathleen Croke & Dermot Heffernan (Lucan).

Runner Up: Laura Whelan and Paul Griffin (Old County).

Gross: Ger Holland and John Lawlor (RGSC(

1st 18 Nett: Susan Ritchie and Willie Delahunty (RGSC).

2nd 18 Nett: M O Toole & Ted Flynn (Lucan).

Well done to the winners and thanks to everyone who entered. A wonderful day in Old County and thank you indeed for being fantastic hosts as always.
