Winter Leagues (Sponsored by Halpenny Golf): The Semi Finals of the Winter Leagues took place last Sunday. The first semi-final was Paul County's Winter Explorers V Kathleen Croke's Golden Oldies +1. The Golden Oldies proved the stronger team and took the first spot in the final. The second match was Seve's Sockets and Peter Keogh's Night Links. Seve's sockets came out the winner in this match to get the second spot in the final. The final will start at 11.30am and it consists of Seve's Sockets V Golden Oldies +1. Make sure to come up and support. Only one scalp to report this week, they are getting scarce now. Danny Kilduff was the victim to his second scalp when Kathleen Croke won their match. Well done Kathleen.
A big thank you to Halpenny Golf for their kind sponsorship of this competition.
