Narm wins Kinawley Cup.
Blacklion’s Kinawley Cup is a matchplay competition held over 6 months. A lower handicapper’s consistency generally means a win for one of our top ten golfers but this year there was a surprise. Narm Boshle and Fred Potter met in the final with Narm taking the cup – a very popular winner.
In the Glenfarne Cup Doubles Matchplay, Joe Keaney and Kevin McPartlan defeated Ciaran Ryan and Kevin McElhatton in the final.
The Cavan/Monaghan Alliance team lost narrowly to Nuremore GC with the match going to the final put on the last hole. Hard luck men – a fine defence of your title.
The battle for golfer of the year is scheduled to go to the wire with Michael McHugh leading from Gaby Fee. Gaby won the end of year shootout but Michael’s 3rd place keeps him in the driving seat.
Result. 1 Gaby Fee 39
2 Kevin McPartland 39
3 Michael McHugh 38
