Golfing star on the rise

Well done to Paul Dunne for his efforts at the British Open since Thursday.

The entire country was yesterday willing the Greystones golfer to realise a fairytale that Walt Disney would struggle to put a script too. However it was not to be - on this occasion.

One thing is sure though - many bright days lie ahead for the young golfer.

Dunne held his own more than comfortably at St Andrews and the golfing world is well aware of another up-and-coming Irish player whose star is very much in the ascendency.
