The Heath Ladies Minor Cup team claimed silver medals in the recent Golf Ireland Final.
This a team event where clubs play against each other with three matches in one club and two taking place in the other.
The competition commenced on the June 13 against Killeen.
The team won all their games and advanced to the next round where Rathdowney were defeated.
They marched on to face Royal Curragh on the July 11 where another victory placed The Heath in an area semi final against Longford.
Once again The Heath proved too strong and advanced to the area final against Kilkenny’s Mount Juliet. Winning just one match at home we needed to win two away – which they did.
Having won the area final, The Heath qualified for the All Ireland Inter-Club Finals.
There were eight areas that qualified; two from Ulster, two from Munster, one from Connacht, and three from Leinster.
These matches were played at Shandon Park Golf Club in Belfast last week.
The Heath were drawn against Castlegregory the West Munster regional winners which they won convincingly to qualify for the semi-finals.
This time they met East Cork – a club that has a formidable reputation. This was a very exciting match having won two and lost two it was anyone’s game. But The Heath won on the 19th hole to reach the final.
Unfortunately, Powerscourt just proved too strong in the final but the team can be very proud of their efforts.
Team: Mary Mahon, Mary McNamara, Anne Doolan, Maria Delaney and Helen Bergin. Subs: Therese Ryan, May Tyrrell and Imelda Monahan.
Team Managers: Marion Mills and Jane O’Rourke
