Raheny GAA Golf Society

Raheny GAA ~ Clontarf Golf Club ~ Friday September 30

Thank you to all those who took part in the Raheny GAA Golf Society in Clontarf GC on Friday. It 

was a nice build up to the All Ireland Final and t's great to see everyone back in the club bar afterwards. This is the last outing of the year and we will start back again next April. 
Aside from trying to help boost the bar income in the club, the society has also raised 570 euro and will discuss with Fionnan Ryan (our GAA club Treasurer) as to where best to deploy these funds as we'd like to identify a specific project to commit them too.

Congratulations to the following prize winners from Friday: 
1st Place - Dave Heffernan
2nd Place - Kevin Leech. 
Best Front 9 - Fintan O'Hanlon 
Best Back 9 - Eoin Leech
Best cumulative score on Par 3's - Shane Walsh
