Connemara Golf Links progress to the next round of The All Ireland Fourball Inter Club Matchplay.
On Sunday 24th April Connemara took on Connemara Isles, with the advantage of a home tie. The Connemara pairings were Tim Hickey & Vivian Cotter (Home) Dominic Lynch & Martin Egan (Home) Liam Shannon & Leo DeCourcey (Home) Jim Taplin & Kenneth Coyne (Away) and Michael Kearney & James J. DeCourcey (Away). The away team drew with a win for Kearney & DeCourcey and a loss for Taplin & Coyne. At home Connemara looked strong on the turn but a surprise loss for Hickey & Cotter let the Isles back into it. Shannon & L. DeCourcey showed great nerve to win the 2nd home match on the 15th 4 & 3. It was done to a very close game to decide the winning team. The match was close throughout with Lynch & Egan all square at the turn. The Isles started the back 9 strong and went 2 up on the 11th, but Connemara won 12th, 15th and 16th to go ahead at the finish only to lose 17th. A very close missed putt on 18th by the Isles brought the match to the 19th, where Connemara halved, but the winner came on the 20th hole when both Connemara player were on in 2, the Isles struggled and Connemara were given the win. We now go on to face either Gort or Bearna in the 2nd round, well done to both teams and all involved.
