​Mahony's Point to host AIG Jimmy Bruen Shield

  • 01 October 2020

​Munster Semi-Finals & Final
AIG Jimmy Bruen Shield
at Killarney GC (Mahony's Point)

The last of the 2020 AIG Cups & Shields Munster finals will be played out on Saturday when Mahony's Point in Killarney will host the AIG Jimmy Bruen Shield.  With three blue pennants safely in their new homes, Berehaven, Fota Island, Tramore and Shannon will be hoping to claim the final Munster Golf inter-club title of the year. 

Last weekend there was great excitement in Fermoy as Castletroy won the AIG Junior Cup, and Spanish Point captured the AIG Pierce Purcell title.  On Sunday Faithlegg shocked many people with an impressive win in the AIG Senior Cup. 

It is the first time that the provincial final has been held in October, but given the COVID-19 disruption, all four qualifiers will be happy that the finals are taking place.  What is more, each of the four will be looking to win the provincial title and advance to the national finals which take place in Donegal Golf Club later in October.

In the first semi-final Berehaven take on Tramore with the first match teeing off at 8am.  At 8.40am Shannon will take on Fota Island in the second semi-final.  The winners will advance to the final which is scheduled for 1.40pm. Strick Pace of Play Policy as circulated to all teams will apply.
