Chairmans Day Competition Results

Chairman’s Day Competition
Our Chairman, Martin Shanahan, hosted this year’s Chairman’s Day competition on Sunday, September 11th. The large turnout for this event was a testament to the high esteem in which Martin is held. The weather wasn’t very kind but it failed to dampen anyone’s spirits and we had a closely contested competition. The gastronomic fare provided by the Cunnigar “hostesses” before, during and after the competition was top class.

Breda O'Donnell wins at Seniors Championship

Eamonn Birchall, Vice President PPUI, presenting the winner’s prize to Breda O’Donnell.

We have new National Champion in our midst! Breda O’Donnell had a superb victory at the National Seniors Strokeplay Championships in Co. Louth last Sunday, where she won the Junior Grade with a winning score of 118 which gave her a narrow victory of just one stroke over Marlo Everett (Seapoint). This was the culmination of a fantastic year for our very popular Lady Captain, who adds this crown to the many great results she has produced this year. Many congratulations from all at Cunnigar Pitch and Putt Club!!

Cunnigar Scratch Cup Results and Pictures

Our major event of the year, The Cunnigar Scratch Cup, took place last Saturday, September 3rd. This competition, which is very generously sponsored every year by Lawlors Hotel, Dungarvan, attracted some top class players to our well prepared course. Despite a damp start to the day’s play, the weather cleared up and the quality of scoring was exceptional. The eventual winner, Eddie Hennessy from Ashgrove, carded a phenomenal 18 under par on his first 2 rounds. Despite a late comeback in the play-off round by Paudie O’Sullivan from Claycastle, Eddie held his game together and took the trophy (which he also won in 2009). Our own player, Michael Delaney, showed his class on the day also by finishing in 3rd place (which was a very popular result). Three other Cunnigar players were successful in their grades. Andy Keoghan prevailed in the Intermediate Gents, Aiden O’Rourke won the Junior Gents and Breda O’Donnell was victorious in the Ladies (10-18).

In his address to the very large gathering at the prize-giving presentation, our Chairman, Martin Shanahan, thanked all our visitors for making the day a great success. He also thanked Lawlors Hotel for the generous sponsorship that they provide annually to host this event. He also praised the Cunnigar volunteers who had the course in ship-shape condition. Sheila and the ladies in the kitchen were also singled out for the excellent hospitality that was provided for everyone.
