Dear All,

After a tough two years with the pandemic and other factors, my term as Captain had ended. It has been an honour to represent the Men’s Club as Captain.

It was a short year, given that it was May before the Committee took office. Despite that, we had a nearly full calendar of events during 2021, Captain’s Day, President’s Day, four monthly medals, inter-club comps, and the Club fourball matchplay.

Congratulations to all the winners of our Club major competitions and a big thank you to all the Inter-Club teams for their endeavours.

Thanks to all the Committee members for their support throughout the year.

I want to take this opportunity to wish both Paddy Hearns & Mark Iveagh who are stepping away from the Men’s committee all the best for the future. During his terms on the Committee, Mark has served as both Captain & President & like Mark, Paddy also served as Captain & President, but Paddy is best known for his role as Junior Convenor, a position he held for the past 14 years.

Thanks also to Synergy Golf, the team in the Clubhouse (Craig, Donal, Colm, Lorcan, and the rest of the team) for their support throughout the year, especially on Captain’s Day.

The Greenkeepers and course maintenance crew for all the work they do to keep the course in excellent condition.
I want to wish Conor, our incoming Captain, all the best for 2022. I hope he has an excellent year,’ and best wishes to Denise Larkin the incoming Lady Captain for her captaincy year.

And finally, I want to thank you, the members, for your words of support throughout the year.

Thank you.
Peter Hallahan
