Winter League is concluded   28/01/2018

The Winter League final was contested yesterday Sunday Feb 25th and it was John D Hanley and Coilin Faherty who emerged as winners over the gallant runners up Thomas and Michael John Gruddy. 

Congratulations to the winners and also to the runners up who have only taken up the game in recent years. 

After a marathon qualifying process on many a poor Sunday weatherwise followed by a few rounds of matchplay,the winners are well deserved of their success.






The Winter  League Final line up was completed yesterday Feb 18th when Thomas and Michael John Gruddy defeated David and Seán Gaughan .

They will play  John D Hanley and Coilín Faherty who defeated Peter Mulry and Danny Malone  3 & 1 last weekend .

The final is set for 0956 on Sunday next. 








The final qualifying day of this year's Winter League was completed earlier today and given the day that was in it, it came as no surprise that no one from outside the qualifying spots could propel themselves into the top sixteen.

An open draw was held later in the afternoon.

The final week of Winter League qualifying will be held next Sunday January 28th.

It is a formality for those at the top of the Leaderboard but crunch time for those near the bottom and for those currently outside the top 16. 

The top sixteen at present are

John Hanley            147

Coilín Faherty         142

Noel McLoughlin    142

Jim Brown               141

David Gaughan      139

John Ginnelly          138

Hugh Carey             138

Gary Stanley            137

John D Hanley          137

Michael J Gruddy     137

Seán Gaughan         136

Danny Malone          135

Peter Mulry              133

Vincent Keane          133

John Lennon             133

Thomas Gruddy        129


There are a number of players outside the top 16  who, either have to discard a low score or record a fourth card so there will be a lot of 'moving' before the draw for the Matchplay stage is announced next Sunday afternoon. Looks like 134 might be the magic number !!


All scores for all players in the Winter League are now available in the Mens Results Section.
