Due to the overwhelming support for the Creeslough tragedy Classic on Saturday the 29th October the Captains have decided to run it over two days, Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th October. Your support would be very much appreciated.
As the last victims of the Creeslough tragedy will be laid to rest tomorrow morning, both the Ladies and Gents competitions have been cancelled as a mark of respect. The course will remain open.
An Open Classic will take place on Saturday 29th October as a fundraiser for the victims' families. If anyone would like to sponsor a teebox or a team or make a donation it would be greatly appreciated.
More funerals will take place in Creeslough and Derrybeg tomorrow as a result of Friday's tragedy. As a mark of respect tomorrow's competition has been cancelled. The course will remain open.
The funeral takes place tomorrow of Jessica Gallagher, daughter of Anthony who as you all know is a member of our club. As a mark of respect to all the victims of Friday's tragedy the course will close tomorrow. Please continue to keep in your thoughts and prayers Anthony, Bernie and family and the families of the other 9 people who lost their lives in this awful tragedy.
Due to the horrendously tragic events in Creeslough, the course will be closed this weekend as a mark of respect
Captain Colm Donaghy
The first outing of the 2022/23 Donegal ETB Society season teed off in Dunfanaghy Golf Club in glorious weather conditions.
Captain Cathal McGee struck the first ball and no doubt sent it straight down the middle.
A healthy turn out of 27 players made the trip and some excellent scores were recorded, with some new faces and experienced campaigners making their way into the prizes.
Bolting away quick out of the starting gates was society stalwart Éanna Ó Mainín who recorded an excellent score of 40 points which included a fantastic 23pts on his inward nine. A more recent member to our ranks was very unlucky to be pipped into second on a break of tie. Ciaran Ferry from Coláiste Ailigh hit it very steady around his home track to finish runner-up on the day.
In third place it was wonderful to see long-time member Brian McDermott, at 86 years young no less, rolling back the years with a brilliant 38 point total, well played Brian. Leo Gallagher from the Abbey Vocational School collected the fourth place prize, also on 38pts, beaten on a break of tie. The retired staff prize went to Seamus Clerkin on 35pts while Aidan Guthrie from the Letterkenny Training Centre continues to improve as he collected the Category IV+ prize with 34pts.
The society season continues this coming weekend in Letterkenny Golf Club.
