Men of Howth haul Uden back to the Hill

HOWTH GC achieved their 10th Uden Cup success when defeating Hollywood Lakes in the two-leg final.

The men from the Hill, managed by club vice-captain Bernard Byrne, took a 6-1 lead from the match at home, leaving them needing only 1.5 points from the seven away matches.

Bernard's Bombers duly obliged to bring the Cup back to Howth.

The Uden Cup was the brainchild of JC Uden, a founder member of Donabate GC.

He first presented the trophy in 1940 for competition between members of 12-15 handicap at Donabate and The Island.

That was later extended to other clubs, and this year 22 teams participated in the event.
