This afternoon playing at home in the Cullen Cup Blessington Lakes were narrowly beaten 3 2 by a Woodbrook GC. The match played in glorious conditions saw Blessington start very strongly with Sean Farrell and Dympha Darby wining the first match. This was quickly followed up with Donie McEvoy and Breda Walsh also winning their match. Woodbrook fought back magnificently winning the next two matches despite the best efforts of Blessington pairings of Martina Searson and Derek Brogan and Aiden Tyrell and Eadaoin Ni Chleirigh. Woodbrook won the decisive and match on the 17th despite a spirited performance by Ger Murray and Julie Walsh. A massive thanks to the ladies that stepped in to replace their Kildare based colleagues at such short notice. A big thank must also go to Catherine, Mags, Mary and Bernie for preparing and providing refreshments to both teams before and after the match. Much appreciated.
Best of Luck to Woodbrook in the next round and thank you for your very kind words on our course and hospitality.
