At the monthly meeting of the Governing Body of Thurles Golf Club held on Monday July 6, it was unanimously agreed to send a letter of congratulations to Fr. Martin Hayes on his appointment by Pope Francis as Bishop of Kilmore.

Fr. Martin was a member of the Governing Body for a number of years and has contributed a lot to the day-to-day running of the Club and always had the best interests of the Club at heart.

Fr. Martin kindly celebrated our Annual Mass for Deceased Members in the Clubhouse every November. Fr. Martin is a very keen and good golfer and it is hoped that he will continue to visit the Club when his duties allow. Finally, on behalf of the Governing Body, Committees and members, we wish Bishop Elect Martin every success in his new position.
