Fine win yesterday by Ray Murphys Barton Cup team who won 3 2 against a strong Wexford team, the 2 great wins away by Gar Nolan/Brendan Flynn and Pat Brady/Anthony Doyle being the cornerstone of the win. The Blessed 9 now advance to meet Gowran Park GC from Kilkenny in the next round. Next up in interclub is our Cullen Trophy mixed team who take on Arklow GC, date tbc. Super Win in the June Medal by Brendan Flynn who returned a 70 to win by 1 from Ger Murray. The men’s GOY table is now right up to date with Ray Murphy leading on 49 pts.
