The Donaghmore Ashbourne Golf Society held their 2014 Captain’s Day recently. Joe Dervan selected the fabulous Concra Woods In Castleblaney and we have over 40 golfers tee on in the magnificent surrounding of Lough Muckno in superb weather conditions. Our annual captain’s dinner and prize giving took place in the clubhouse afterwards where Eddie Cassidy was presented with the overall winners prize. In addition to the daily prizes on offer Ian Dowd was presented with the Golfer of the Year award and received the James Dervan Perpetual trophy from James son James Junior. Many tanks go to the organizing committee for the event, The Right Catering Company for the meal and for Conor Martin of Tara Financial Advisory for his sponsorship of the event.
It's a case of buses when it comes to the club Lotto Jackpot in that we had no winners for a long time and two come together. With Joe Mc Quaid scooping the jackpot less than a month ago last Sunday saw Kayla Molloy scoop €12,000 as her aunt Nicola Molloy picked numbers 3, 15, 18 and 24 on Saturday night. Well done to the Molloys and many thanks to those who supported the draw. Next Week's Jackpot is at €9,200.
In one of the strangest games ever our Minor Team survived St.Colmcille's challenge on Friday night as the sides drew level in Ashbourne. With the game starting at 9pm due to the international rules team training it would appear for the first half that both sets of forwards left their shootiing boots at home. It took a full 26 minutes for the first score as Shane Rea found the net as Donaghmore Ashbourne led at the interval by 1-01 to 0-00. The Laytown lads had the better of the second half and scored two goals as the sides finished 1-05 to 2-02 but the blues missed a number of late chances to get the win. No details of the replay yet.
It all roads to Navan this weekend as our seniors travel to Pairc Tailteann for their senior championship semi final. Na Fianna from Enfield provide the opposition with the game on Saturday evening 4th at 17.15. All support welcome.
