The AIG Ladies Cups and Shields National Finals take place at Knightsbrook Hotel and Golf Resort from September 26 – 29. Thirty teams from across the country will this week be hoping to experience the success and prestige associated with winning a National Pennant. 

Shandon Park, Killarney, Headfort, Bearna, Druid’s Heath and Mullingar began play in the AIG Senior Foursomes, Intermediate and Minor Cup today. 

In the AIG Senior Foursomes, defending champions Killarney were denied a second year of success by Shandon Park who won two matches in extra holes to confirm their spot in the semi-finals against Roscommon tomorrow morning.

Brenda Davies defeated Liz Gaffney of Headfort on the 19th to ensure victory for Bearna in the AIG Intermediate Cup. Siobhan Smyth and Nuala Timoney carded the additional two points for the Connacht side while Jennifer Martin and Mary Brennan overcame Imelda McGovern and Clare Cunningham respectively, a three – two victory for Bearna.

The fourth match of the day needing extra holes was the deciding tie in the AIG Minor Cup Quarter Final. With two matches confirmed, Mullingar looked favourites to progress, however Margie Rennix and Hilary Quinn added to Norma Malone’s 4&2 win over Susan Trapp to set-up a semi-final tie against Malone for Druid’s Heath. 

The AIG Ladies Cups and Shields National Finals continues tomorrow with 18 teams going head to head in a bid to become All-Ireland AIG Champions.
