Club President Breda Duggan will officiate at her last official Club function on Thursday next, the 9th of November when the Annual General Meeting of the Club will take place. Breda wishes to advise all that she really enjoyed representing all Members of the Club, Ladies, Men’s and Juniors particularly as a supporter during her year as our President. Breda reflected on the highlights of her year, and the outstanding Club achievement of her year was the success of the Ladies Club in winning both the Ladies Senior Cup and the Senior Foursomes. Breda wishes to thank all Members for the courtesy and support that she received during the year. Breda will then hand over the Presidency to Jack Buckley. Jack joined the Club in 1993, his wife Noreen was already a Club member since the late 1980s. Jack and Noreen have two sons, Joe and Michael, and Michael is also a Club Member. Jack took up the game of golf in the mid 1980s, and Jack was Captain of our Club in 2009, and the highlight of Jack’s year as our Captain was the success in bringing the Irish Open Championship to Killarney for the following year of 2010.
Jack has represented the Club as both a player and a Team Manager, and he was both when Killarney were beaten by the odd match, by Limerick Golf Club in the Munster final of the Pierce Purcell Shield, and Limerick went on to win that All-Ireland championship that year.
