Keogh Cup, Carton, Monday 4th October 2002
Carton House Golf Club, O'Meara Course
The Autumn Outing was revitalised this year following the unavoidable cancellation of the 2001 event due to a clash of dates with the National Day of Mourning.
The Union was delighted to have secured the magnificent O'Meara course at Carton House Golf Club as the venue for the Outing which was held on 4th October 2002. Dinner afterwards was in the Moyglare Manor.
Our sincere thanks go to the Mallaghan family, for their kind attention.
The Time Sheet was fully booked within days of being circulated and 82 players participated in an excellent day out. The results of the competition were as follows:
|Winner Keogh Cup||Paul Kearney on 41 points|
|Second||Niall McDonough on 38 points|
|Third||Karl Hannan on 36 points|
|Winner front nine||Joe Casey on 20 points|
|Winner back nine||David Ronan on 20 points|

The winner of the Ladies Prize was Rita McLaughlin (our only brave lady participant). The President said in his after dinner speech that he hopes to see more ladies and parents participate in the Autumn Golf Outings of the Union.

A very special thank you is due to Lorcan Tiernan without whom there would simply be no golf outings.It was a most enjoyable occasion and the close relationship between Milltown Golf Club and the Union was reflected in the kind words of the President of the club, Mr Gerry Coleman, at the evening dinner, and the very relaxed atmosphere that prevailed throughout the day. Our thanks as usual to the staff at Milltown.
