Ballykisteen win Michael Cashman Trophy

​​​Second Munster Pennant for Ballykisteen in 2017

  • 27 August 2017
Ballykisteen become the second club to add their name to the Michael Cashman Trophy, the cup presented to the Munster winners of the All Ireland Inter-Club fourball competition.  Ballykisteen faced Dromoland in the Munster final at Fermoy today and the Tipperary club had a solid performance from their team.  Their first point came from Brendan O’Keeffe & Mark Timmons, and a second point followed soon after from Michael Ryan and Adrian Usher.  The result was decided when William Hanly and Pat Toomey won on the 17th, giving Ballykisteen a second Munster pennant to go with the AIG Jimmy Bruen Shield title they won last month in Killarney.  They are the second Tipperary club to win the title following Slievenamon’s win last year, and they will go on to the All Ireland semi-finals in Millicent next month.

 

It was the second big Munster Golf event for Fermoy this season.  The club, which is celebrating its 125th anniversary, also hosted the Fred Daly Trophy and Junior Foursomes Munster finals earlier this month.  Munster Golf Chairman Jim Long thanked everyone from Fermoy for hosting the events and for presenting the course in great condition for each of the three competitions.  He also thanked referees Sean O’Leary and Bill Murphy, and all involved with the successful staging of the competition.
