Carrickmines Golf Croquet Open Weekend

This new event was played at Carrickmines on the 27th and 28th of May. Out of 31 entrants, 3 scratched before play began. Group play with 4 games for everybody was followed by a seeded play-off and a plate event for losers. To make sure of no delays, a shortened third game was the rule for the best-of-three matches. The management cannot have been too bad as there was very little squawking from the competitors.

CAI 10 - SCA 6

   This year's match between Ireland and Scotland was played at Carrickmines last weekend, with victory going to the hosts in the latter stages. The Scots fielded a team of four, so the CAI team was Nathaniel Healy, Alan Looney, Gerard Osborne Burke and Geraldine O'Rourke (the latter as a late replacement for the injured Frank Martin) .

Ireland took the lead on Saturday morning by winning both doubles games but from then until Sunday afternoon each session was divided evenly, so we were leading 6 - 4 on Saturday evening.
