Our 73rd annual golf outing was scheduled for Friday 9th May in Hermitage Golf Club with a shotgun start at 2.00pm. On the day we had a great turnout but unfortunately the weather was not our friend and in spite of a delayed start we had to abandon the outing due to incessant rain.
In spite of that, many of those who were there had an enjoyable afternoon catching up with friends they hadn’t seen for a while. With the good help of Ann Murray an alternative date was negotiated for July 24th from 11am to 2pm.
This time the gods favoured us and we had a lovely dry day. In spite of it being peak holiday time we had 50 past pupils playing from schools all over the country. I was very pleased to meet some past pupils of my own school, Loreto Mullingar.
As usual Stephanie Graham and Joan Merrigan, with the assistance of Sally Ann Fanagan handled the registration of players very efficiently.
The golf course was in great condition and everybody enjoyed their golf.
During the day a raffle was run in aid of the Loreto Union charities and in particular Loreto Rumbeck in South Sudan, and was generously supported by the players.
We are very grateful to The Sports Surgery Clinic in Santry for their sponsorship again this year.
Emily Banville representing the Past Pupils Union presented the Gross Prize which was sponsored by the Union.
By 7pm the results were ready and the presentation of prizes went ahead. Congratulations to Nessa McKiernan who won the top prize on the day. A full list of prize winners and photos are included on this page.
Many thanks to all who helped make the outing a great success and who put a lot of work behind the scenes into organising both May 9th and July 24th ….. Ann Murray, Mary O’Gorman, Bronwyn O’Donnell, Deirdre Naughton, Stephanie Graham, Joan Merrigan and Sally Ann Fanagan.
