Congratulations to two of Fermoy's most promising pitch and putt players on winning the two Cork County stroke play championships on offer on their home course in Fermoy on Saturday and Sunday last.

On Saturday the Men's Intermediate Championship was played and, after a playoff, young Daniel Keohane (96) held his nerve to cap a splendid victory for himself and the Fermoy club.

On Sunday, in another day of sweltering heat, another young player and club colleague, James Devonshire, returned a splendid 91 to pip former champion Ray Murphy (St Anne's) who scored 91, The junior championship was also played and it saw Castlelyons player K Cotter (104) take second place to Douglas club player S Neiland 101.

The local club was congratulated on the state of the course and for the arrangements which were in place for the competitions.

Saturday next July 13th is Captain JJ O'Connor's prize day at the club. Play in the 36 hole stroke play competition begins on Saturday morning at 8.30am with a top 12 playoff later in the evening.

GAA

On the local GAA scene, the finals of the Cavanagh's of Fermoy Football leagues were concluded at the weekend. Two games were played in Fermoy on Saturday last and perhaps the one which captured the imagination of the handy sized local crowd was the Division Two final involving local rivals Grange and Glanworth. The first period of this game was even enough but as the second half developed it became more apparent that Glanworth were the stronger side and they ran out comfortable winners at the finish.

The second game was really too one sided as Mitchelstown scored a very easy victory over East cork side Carrignavar in the Div One League.

On Friday last Fermoy, forced to field without several members of their Div Two hurling side, fell just short in their bid to collect two valuable league points from their home game with Charleville. The reason so many were missing was due to the club's Co U21 FB semi final game v Valley Rovers which was to be played on last Tuesday night in Riverstown. Hopefully we might have some good news on that game in next week's notes.

LADIES FOOTBALL

Congratulations to Fermoy Ladies Football Club on the recent success of their U14 girls in winning the Co Championship when they defeated Douglas 4-4 to 2-8 after a thrilling final played at Watergrasshill.
