Club Captain Declan McCarthy on behalf of the entire Club sends our heartiest congratulations to Ryan Kelliher on his success in The Kerry Boys Championship played at Ballybunion recently, Ryan is one of our group of very talented youths currently representing our Club, and we all wish him continued success for the future. Ryan is just 16 years of age, and he is already a seasoned campaigner representing our Club, and Ryan will have two further years playing in this particular championship. Ryan’s win is following in the family footsteps as his father Tomas, a former Irish Youths International, had won this Championship on two previous occasions in 1983 & 1984, and Tomas and Ryan have now become the first ever father and son pairing to have won this Championship. Ryan defeated James Temple of Portmarnock in the final on the 19th green, and the list of previous champions includes such golfing luminaries as John McHerny and Tommy
Corridan. James Temple had overcome another of Killarney’s finest, Luke Walsh in the first round of the matchplay stages, the earlier rounds were strokeplay to determine the best of those who were competing for the championship, that would qualify for the matchplay itself.
