All-Ireland Juvenile Strokeplay
Congratulations to Joe Franklin on his third place finish in the National Boys (under 16) Strokeplay held in Lakeside. It was a fantastic achievement for the young man and he has plenty of years left to aim for the big prize. Last week Joe won the Tipperary under 13 title, and has three more chances to win the under 16 national title.
Also well done to our other players who qualified - Matthew Buckley, Oisin Martin, Ben Franklin and Cillian O’Reilly on their great scores. Also we note that all- round sportsman, Owen Quigley did very well in the All-Ireland golf tournament in Cahir.
