2017 Annual Golf Day Report

Last Saturday 17th June marked the St. Colmcilles’ Annual Golf Day. The day proved to be fantastically successful, a great day was had by all and we managed to raise funds for the running of the club throughout the year.

First of all we’d like to say a massive thank you to our sponsors who make this day and the running of our club possible. Above are our Day and Hole sponsors who gave generously to ensure that the club has funds to continue functioning and growing. A special mention to our Day Sponsors, Claddagh Developments and ECS Group for their sponsorship. It has been possible in the last few years to grow the club and the increase numbers playing gaelic football in St Albans and that has been due to the generosity and help from these sponsors so, thank you very much. This year we managed to raise over £3,000 which will be put to great use over the coming year.

The golf took place at Redbourn Golf Club. 22 players went out and played in the glorious weather on Saturday afternoon in the brilliant Hertfordshire countryside. There were a number of prizes up for grabs on the day and they were awarded as follows:

Nearest the Pin: Rod Lavery

Longest Drive: Conor Luttrell

Junior Winner: Alex Sharkey

Team Winner: Pat Walsh, Tommy McAndrew, Sean Carney & Andy Plunkett

Individual Winner: Aiden Clifford

Well done to all who played!

After the golf, it was then back to the St Albans Irish Club – Official where there was a BBQ in full swing and the drinks were flowing. A big thank you to all who volunteered on the day, especially the footballers from the ladies team who helped with the BBQ back at the club.

As an extra bit of entertainment there was a fine footballing display as the St. Colmcilles Over 40’s took on the London Masters team. A good few former Saints dusted off their gear and togged out in Cotlandswick to relive their glory days alongside some of our current senior team. The match was very close all the way through, with London leading for most of the match by the narrowest of margins however, it was the St Albans side who finished the stronger and ran out winners by a couple of goals.
