Posted by Golf on Mon, 02-03-2015

5 of our NUIG students travelled up to Carton House Golf Club to compete against the mighty NUIMaynooth (b). This team consisted of Enda Craddock, Ryan O'Doherty, Colm Hughes, Peter Fleming and Cathal Nolan. The lads competed well, but it was not their day as they lost 4-1.

Hopefully things will turn around for us in the event this time next year. Nonetheless congrats to the Maynooth lads, we wish them all the best in the next round of ...
