Ireland 18th-21st June

My playing partners on the 16th at Enniscorthy, Leighton Davies, Adrian Gregory and Wes Reynolds

28 of us set out on the trip - Thanks to Lyn Devreaux for this photo

My shot went into the trees and while I was preparing to chip out I heard the shout of 'FORE' and a ball clattering through the branches of the trees above me, it landed on the roof of the buggy and stayed there. I told Wes he shoud play it as it lies, he wanted me to drive to the green and see if I could make it drop off there.

A great three day trip to Ireland saw 28 of us heading over on the ferry to enjoy some good weather and some excellent Guinness. There was also a bit of golf played at Wexford, Enniscorthy and St Helen's Bay.

A few people need special thanks, firstly for the excellent organisation Kenny Morris who did all the negotiating and arranging which meant that the rest of us just had to turn up. Secondly Mike Davey for providing the transport and for driving us all to each of the venues, we greatly appreciated the fact that you watched the rest of us sip the Guinness while you waited to drive us back to the hotel late on the Wednesday evening. Also Adrian Gregory for being 'treasurer and scorekeeper at each of the golf venues. Thanks are also due to the guys who sponsored nearest the pin each day and they were Mike Thomas, Mike Davey, Steve Parfitt and John Booth. And finally, the guys who put on the show at Enniscorthy Golf Club that's Kenny Morris, Phil Elliott and Dave Devreaux - what a show it was, one of the members came over to me and said 'I have been a member here for 50 years and have never seen anything so good in the club'

I must say that the welcome that we received was absolutely fabulous and this was not just at the golf clubs but in the hotel, the shops and the bars

 

Kenny Morris was given a card of thanks for organising the trip
