Inauguration of the Delgany Schools Cup
Friday 29th May saw the inauguration of the Delgany Schools Cup for Wicklow Primary school golfers. Brilliantly sponsored by Hilary Hayden & Co., the competition was hosted by Delgany Golf club which saw budding Pádraig Harringtons from several local schools, including St. Cronans arrive at 7.30 am for the competition.
Our two school teams were chosen from an initial group of 40 enthusiastic golfers with the honour of representing us falling to Jack Reynolds, Daniel Treanor, Cathal Martin and Garreth Byrne, all in 6th class.
They acquitted themselves very well in the 9 hole competition but they had to give way to an excellent team from Delgany National School, the overall Boys Winners. St. Brigid’s in Greystones won the Girls’ competition.
Our 5th class team came out tops in the skills coaching with Niall Martin, Jack Nolan, Conor Prendergast and Eoin Keenan representing the school.
This is going to be an annual event so with holidays approaching there will be plenty of time for interested golf-hopefuls to get down to work and improve their handicap!
We are most grateful to Susanne and Dominic Martin who not only spent time coaching the boys prior to the competition but they took time off work to accompany them through the competitions. Thanks also to Mr Hammill and his committee in Delgany GC
Well done to all and congratulations to our representatives and to the Delgany NS and St. Brigid’s winning teams. It was wonderful day.
