Well done to our Fred Perry team, under the management of Denis Cleary and Jimmy Phelan, who had a comprehensive win over Co. Tipperary Golf Club in Dundrum. The team members were Tommy Quigley & Frankie McGrath, Jack Looby & Stephen Ryan, Eamon Hayes & Paudie Butler, Declan Corcoran & Eamon O’Gorman. Thurles won 4-1 and meet Templemore in the next round – best of luck to team and managers!

Last Saturday unfortunately saw our Senior Cup team bow out of the Senior Cup to Tipperary Town in the second round of coveted Championship.
Golf, once again, proved to be a cruellest of sports as our high ambitions were dented by a very solid Tipperary 5.

The highlight of the day was the top match which pitted the top ranked and highly regarded Thurles man Aaron Ryan against the underage National Champion Donnacha Cleary from Tipp. The two traded birdies and ended all square on 18 when the match overall was concluded.
It was a disappointing day for our lads, but they will regroup and go again. Best of luck to Tipperary who now carry the flag to the Munster Championship.
Team: Aaron Ryan, Paul Byrne, Jon Foran, Matthew Ryan, Evan Long. Well done lads!
