LATE JOHN LANE.
It was with deep sorrow we heard on Saturday of the passing of John Lane, following a brief illness.
Sincere sympathy is extended to son John, daughter Claire, daughter-in-law Ann , son-in-law Jack, grand-children Kieran, Chloe, Declan, Owen, and Olivia, cousins, relatives, and a large circle of friends.
Endowed with a happy, fun loving disposition, and a magical personality, he endeared himself to one and all and will be sadly missed by friends and colleagues.
He made a mammoth contribution to Charleville Golf Club, as Captain 1974, President 1992, Hon Treasurer 1974-1991 and current Trustee. He was also a fine golfer winning Two Presidents and many more Prizes. But his sporting achievements were not confined to the Golf Course as he was a prominent member of the local hurling, football and rugby clubs playing in many of their teams. His proudest sporting achievement was his winning a Munster Tennis Championship. Following his tennis years he was one of the founder members of the local Squash Club, a game in which he enjoyed much success for many years.
As a member of St Colmans Players he appeared in many of their plays and was very proud when adjudicator Bryan Mc Mahon lauded him for having a fine voice. This voice was heard to fine effect in the Tenor line of Holy Cross Church Choir for many years.
Following the death of his wife Bridie three years ago John's daily routine started with 10 o'clock Mass. After Mass he went for coffee to the Forge where he joined three elderly friends. One lady there benignly referred to them as" The last of the Summer Wine". Sadly the first of our Summer wine has departed, Good bye dear friend. May you sleep in heavenly peace.
With the West course still unplayable following recent storm tree damage our Senior golfers played 14 holes on the East course with the following results
1st Tom Heffernan, Henry Dore, Brendan Murphy.
2nd John Callanan, John Roche, John Cotter, Donal McSweeney
With an improvement in the weather and the majority of the fallen trees now cleared from the course, the Tournament committee announce a great improvement in the entries for the League and are pleased to announce a commencement to the opening round this week end.There will now be 3 x 9 hole qualifying rounds on the East Course which must be completed by Sunday 23rd March when the draw for the Matchplay will take place. Good luck to all competing teams.
