The Island has a wonderful pedigree in top level amateur golf and that could continue this weekend as the club's elite ladies seek a second successive All Ireland Senior Cup triumph.

The finals take place at Greystones tomorrow and Saturday, with District Final winners Royal Portrush, Kilkenny, Cork and Ballinasloe hoping to dethrone the champions.

District runners-up Clandeboye, the Heath and Milltown are also in the mix, but all eyes will be on The Island, who edged out Kilkenny last year.

They will face Ulster district runners up Clandeboye in tomorrow's quarter-finals, while last year's runners-up Kilkenny face the Heath, having already overcome them in a tense District Final.

Munster champions Cork will take on Connacht district champions Ballinasloe, while Ulster district champions Royal Portrush face East Leinster district finalists Milltown.

In the Girls Interclub All-Ireland Finals, Massereene face Enniscrone, with Shannon taking on Milltown in today's semi-finals, also at Greystones.

The Milltown team of Ellen O'Gorman, Aisling Walsh and Emma Walsh are tipped as slight favourites to go through to this afternoon's final.
