Drive-in rain at local golf club ceremony
Published 15/01/2014 | 05:36
The annual Castleisland Golf Club Drive-In went ahead on Sunday morning in spite of frightful weather, after being called off previously due to even worse conditions.
The newly installed officers were joined afterwards in the clubhouse by fellow members as the worsening conditions and driving rain lashed the countryside around them.
New captains, Margaret Moloney and John O'Connell and presidents, Ann Stuart and Maurice O'Connor, hoped for better conditions for the year ahead as they settle into their roles at the scenic and beautifully developing course at Tulligubeen. The course is now facing into its 13th year of service since it was opened in the summer of 2002.
