Pierce Purcell Shield

There was heart break for the Mountain View Pierce Purcell team last Sunday in Borris GC where they lost 3 – 2 to the host club. After edging out Waterford GC by just one point on Saturday they qualified to play Borris in Sundays final. With the teams tied at two matches each a putt on the 18th is all that separated the two teams in the final match. Best wishes to Borris GC in the remainder on the competition. Sincere thanks to Bee O Grady director of golf at Mountain View, team managers Patrick Halligan and Willie Grace on their team selection. To get to Sundays final was a great achievement the dedication of players and management was hugely apparent on both days. The team members were E. Walsh, G.Barcoe, A. Brownrigg, J. Clarke, J. Byrne, F. Costello, K. Kelly, K. Kavanagh, B. Hearne and F. Kavanagh.
