A huge congratulations to our Intermediate Cup team who were crowned All Ireland Champions in this competition when they comprehensively defeated Wicklow in the final on Friday 23rd. They were successful over Ballykisteen in the semi-final on Thursday.
Wicklow didn't get a look in against Portumna in the AIG Ladies Cups and Shields Intermediate Cup final. Portumna's Kathleen Lynch got the day off to a great start, having secured a 6&4 win. Carmel Cunningham replicated this win for the Galway team as she also closed out her match on the 14th. With one point left to secure for the AIG All-Ireland title, Sinead Lohan stepped up to the plate as she approached the 18th 1 up. She hit a perfect drive and approach shot and finished with a stunning par, and as the middle and bottom matches were called in, the celebrations ensued for Portumna.
