Tralee won the AIG Barton Shield Munster Final with
a great display of golf against Castletroy. The hosts defeated holders
Cork in the morning semi-final, again playing some great golf to win by four
holes. They took an early lead in the final with the first pairing of
Darren O’Sullivan and Eoghan O’Donnell starting well and holding a two hole
lead at the turn. Fergal O’Sullivan was partnered by Ger Deegan who came
in for Graham Spring in the final in the second Tralee pairing, and they
birdied the first and second to get off to the perfect start. The pair were
three under at the turn and six up on their opponents. Tralee extended
their lead slightly and although Castletroy mounted a comeback the deficit was
too great and Tralee eventually won by eight holes.
In the second final today, Limerick won the AIG
Senior Cup Munster Final. Jim Long, Chairman Munster Golf congratulated
both winners and thanked Tralee for hosting the finals, and he also thanked
Philip Coburn from AIG, title sponsors of the GUI Cups & Shields.
