Killarney

Club captain Derry McCarthy on behalf of the whole Club wishes to send our sincere condolences to Katie O’Connell, Competition Secretary of our Ladies Club on the recent death of her beloved mother, Lady Elizabeth O’Connell of Lakeview House, Fossa, and to all of the extended O’Connell family. The O’Connell family have been synonymous with Killarney Golf Club since the Club’s inception in 1893 when we were located at Deerpark, which was located at the North side of Killarney town, part of which is now the bypass road. Sir Morgan O’Connell in the
early 1900s presented a very fine cup, The O’Connell Cup, valued at 10 Guineas, to the club for a Men’s Club Competition. In the 1930s it was Sir Morgan O’Connell who suggested to Lord Castlerosse that the Western Demesne, at Mahony’s Point would make an excellent location for a Golf Course, when it became necessary to find a new golf course location, as Deerpark was no longer feasible as the Club’s location. Lady Elizabeth herself was very involved in the Girl Guide movement, and many young girls in Killarney and its surrounding areas were introduced into the Girl Guide movement by Lady Elizabeth O’Connell in the 1960s and 1970s. Club Captain Derry would also like to send our condolences to Liam Walsh on the recent Passing of his mother Dora Walsh, Fossa, Killarney. Due to the continued inclement weather with Storm Emma and the Beast from the East clashing then our planned Competition for Sunday the 4th of March was cancelled
once again, so accordingly we do not have any Competition results to report this week.
