Congrats to our All-Ireland Mixed Foursomes Champions

Tullamore Golf Club made history on 9 September 2017 when they won the All-Ireland Mixed foursomes for the third time and became the first club to win it on three occasions when they overcame Adare Manor in the final at Castlebar.

This is how it was reported on the GUI Website

On a day that started wet and windy, the sun emerged as the first point of the day was won by Matthew Grehan and Fiona Flanagan for Tullamore with a comprehensive win over Alan Purcell and Antoinette Meghen by 5/4.

The Munster side squared things as Tony Davern & Ina Desmond ran out winners on the final green beating the Tullamore pairing of Eoin Marsden and Richelle O'Neill by 2 holes.

Martin Darcy and Eilish O'Connell added a second point for Tullamore with a win over Martin Hayes and Breda Naughton before Eoin Moran and Phil Mann levelled things again for Adare with a 2/1 win over Eoin Flanagan and Emily Donohue.

The drama was left to unfold in the final match as Adare Manor's heretofore unbeaten Brian Murray and Deirdre Keating faced Colm Cassidy and veteran of Tullamore's 2000 winning team Cait Cooney.

The Tullamore pair went ahead very early and took a commanding four hole lead around the turn. Despite the best efforts of Murray and Keating the damage inflicted early on was too much and victory was sealed for Tullamore in front of a thronged gallery on the par-three 16th green next to the clubhouse.

It was an emotional day for Cooney, the self confessed ‘granny’ of the team. “I’m absolutley elated. It means so much to me to be part of this team this year because I have a lot of memories of 2000 but I won’t go there now. I must thank my partner Colm who was an absolute pleasure to play with and he won this match for me.”

 The side was captained by Joe Morris and Una Marsden.

 “It’s brilliant!” Morris beamed afterwards. “It’s a wonderful achievement . We knew we had a very strong team when Una and I put this team together. It came to fruition thank god.”

 The Tullamore side gelled very well in both the semi-final and in the final, something that Marsden paid tribute to. “They gelled brilliantly. There’s no real secret, they all bonded very well and got on very well. They all practiced together, it was great.”
