President Michael Purcell Appreciation.

It is an honour and privilege for me to be President of Templemore Golf Club for 2022. A special word of thanks to Bertie Keane for nominating me for the position as President.  I acknowledge and thank all of my fellow golfers for taking to the fairways and taking part in the President’s Prize over the last two days.  Congratulations to Denis Maher, who played a great round of golf and had an excellent and impressive score. Well done to all the prize winners. The competition could not have taken place without the hard work and fantastic support of several people who deserve a special mention.  Special thanks to the competition committee – Seán Lee, Les Mason, Declan Russell and Michael Keely for running the competition.  I want to acknowledge the excellent job done to ensure that the competition ran smoothly over the weekend.   A special mention to the course team, Denis Maher, Tom McGrath, Michael Webster and Liam Leahy, for excellent work and having the course in perfect condition.  I also want to acknowledge the work of all the members who volunteered and helped out on the course prior to the competition.  Thanks to everybody for supporting the President’s Prize and making this an enjoyable weekend of golf.   Finally, I am delighted to designate Rody Cawley to take over the position of Club President for 2023.   President Michael Purcell.
