Late Tim O'Sullivan
The Committee and members of the Golf Club were saddened last week to hear of the sudden passing of Tim O Sullivan. In London A highly popular member for many years Tim was a regular visitor and like the swallows he returned each year to play important games with family  and club members.This larger than life character will be sadly missed from the clubhouse this year and Summer will seem a little duller without his presence, Sympathy is extended to Maureen,the family and extended family,

 

 

The late Willy Hayes.
There was a huge crowd at both the removal and funeral of Willie Hayes who was buried on Monday. A relative newcomer to golf this popular happy fun loving gentleman endeared himself to one and all, especially his Senior Golfers who looked forward to having a game with him each Wednesday.A reward for each partner was a mint  for any Birdie scored. Willie who saw good in everyone will be sadly missed.Sympathy is extended to Kathleen, daughter Debbie
Son in law Greg, grandchildren and extended family, May the green sod of Bulgaden rest lightly 
On this gentle soul.
