Killarney Ladies Senior Cup Team were crowned Munster Champions Sunday May 21st in a series of thrilling encounters. They won their quarter final well against Muskerry on Saturday. Sunday morning saw Killarney taking on the much fancied Douglas Golf Club in the Semi Final. This match was a tight encounter with great golf being played by both Killarney and Douglas. However, Mairead Martin’s Birdie putt on the 19th clinched the Match for Killarney and guaranteed them a place in the afternoon final against Lahinch G.C. The match against a very strong side was an epic encounter. To add to the excitement of the game Valerie Clancy, Killarney, scored a Hole in One on the 7th . The final result came down to the wire with Valerie Clancy winning on 17, followed by Mairead Martin on 18. Kelly Brotherton was 1 up going down the 18th. She hit a tremendous drive down 18, chipped on and parred with 2 putts. Brotherton halved the hole with Aine Donegan from Lahinch thus ensuring a killarney victory. Heartiest congratulations to the Manager, Mary Geaney and her players – Lady Captain Amy Arthur, Kelly Brotherton, Valerie Clancy, Claire Keating, Mairead Martin, Anne Moynihan-Rudden, Eimear O’Donnell and Mary Sheehy. Killarney Team now qualify for the All Ireland Final to be held in Royal Curragh Golf Course weekend of August 25th.
