Dubs targeting inter-counties

THE challenging and compact St Patrick's course in Enniscorthy hosts this weekend's Inter-County Championships.

It's ladies first today when Dublin will be hoping to hold on to the title they won in such impressive fashion at Portmarnock last year.

The Dubs have every chance, especially with a line-up that contains Ger Ward, Sheelagh Elmes, Stella Sheridan, Maree O'Toole, Siobhan Keeley and Barbara Furlong.

Tomorrow, the Dublin gents will be in action. Teeing off for the Blues will be the formidable six-pack of Murray, Crangle, Millar, Smith, Nolan and Mithen.

As ever, Cork are the number one seeds, but Kerry, Wexford and the Dubs are tipped to also feature high on the leaderboard.
