Fred Daly Boys Competition.

A fantastic performance by all the team in giving their all.   Tipperary town was a highlight drama account of superb golf by Ned Walsh and Eoghan Kelly.  Eoghan had a tremendous game with steady play and bringing the match to the 20th hole for the final decider in favour of Tipperary by one put.   Without doubt “Man of The Match” for steadiness and superb iron play.  A bright future ahead for these boys.  Away.  Eoghan Kelly, Ned Walsh.   Home, Daniel Joyce. Janie Ormond. Ned Daleney
