SEAPOINT player Adam Fahey went one better than 12 months ago when he captured the Irish U14 Boys Championship title at Lucan GC last Friday.

Fahey came from a shot back to finish on six over par, three clear of Elm Park’s Freddie Bracken, with the overnight leader David Lyttle (Castlerock) finishing in third on +11.

Fahey missed out by a shot in last year’s Irish U14 Boys Open and was naturally delighted to get over the line at the second time of asking.

“It’s a great feeling,” he said. “I was close last year in Longford. It’s great to get over the line today though. I tried to play as solid as I could and not focus on what Freddie or David were doing.

“I tried to play with the least amount of mistakes possible. Last year I had one bad hole and it cost me the tournament. It was all about getting as many birdies and pars today.”
