It was one of the biggest days of the year at Killarney Golf and Fishing Club and, thankfully, the weather didn’t play spoilsport as Lady Captain Anne Duggan hosted her big prize day with four separate categories up for grabs.

Anne was elected Lady Captain alongside Men’s Captain Tommy Galvin and President Junior Finnegan, at the start of the year, and they are certainly making up for time and action lost during the pandemic lockdowns with very busy schedules on both the Killeen and Mahony’s Point courses.

In the men’s competition the honours went to Cornelius O’Connor who fought off great challenges from Eoin O’Donoghue, Dean Fitzgerald, Teddy O’Sullivan, Peter Counihan, Tomás Sugrue and James Jones.
