CONGRATULATIONS to the ladies team at Killarney Golf & Fishing Club who have claimed their second All-Ireland title in just over a month in the AIG Senior Foursomes Final.

The finals of the Ladies AIG Cups and Shields took place at Malone Golf Club, Belfast. The club’s senior foursomes team defeated Lurgan in Thursday’s semi-final and went on to meet Roscommon in the final on Friday.

The final proved to be a nail-biting encounter with the overall result coming down to the final match.

Play had to be suspended on Friday due to darkness, with the final match against Roscommon involving the pairing of Eimear O’Donnell and Amy Arthur, undecided after 20 holes. Play resumed at 10am on Saturday morning and the team were crowned the winners after Eimear O’Donnell holed a five-footer for par on the 21st hole to give them the All-Ireland title.

“This has been a momentous year for the club with two ladies senior teams winning All-Ireland titles. In August, the club’s senior cup team won the All-Ireland for the first time in the club’s history and now we have our senior foursomes team winning another All-Ireland title,” said Cormac Flannery, general manager of Killarney Golf & Fishing Club.

“This is testament to the strength and depth of talent we have in our Ladies section. The team managers and panels put a huge amount of work into the preparation for these competitions and it’s been fantastic to see all that effort pay off. The support received from the club members has also been a significant factor in their success. It’s a brilliant achievement and we’re just hugely proud of them.”

The Senior Foursomes Team manager was Claire Keating and the panel included Mary Sheehy, Fidelma O’Connor, Deirdre Prendergast, Anne Moynihan Rudden, Eimear O’Donnell, lady captain Amy Arthur, Mary O’Doherty and Corrina Griffin.

Ian O’Connell said he is delighted with the messages of support following his first broadcast as a presenter on Radio Kerry this week.

The well-known and popular Killarney man was left with life-changing injuries after falling from his bike in Killarney National Park in 2017.

Since the accident he has been a champion for the less fortunate under his mantra: “If you can’t stand up – standout”.

This was the inspiration behind his brand new radio show which aired for the first time on Wednesday evening.

‘Stand Out with Ian O’Connell’ will feature interviews with people who have overcome great adversary to reach even greater heights.

His first guest was fellow Killarney man Jordan Lee. The Paralympian represented Ireland in the Tokyo Olympics this summer.

“I was used to being in the studio from people interviewing me, but this time I turned the table,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“It was great to have Jordan on, two Killarney men! I really enjoyed it, it got a massive reaction and I got loads of emails and messages afterwards and into Thursday morning.”

Ian will reveal his guest for the show on the previous Monday through various social media channels.
