Golfers Support Wexford GAA again!
Another very successful fundraising and social event was hosted by Wexford GAA Supporters Club in the Golf Club Wexford on Friday 3rd May as 44 teams from around the county turned out to show their support for Wexford GAA and our county teams.
Des Croke a member of the Wexford Supporters Club Committee was the driving force if you`ll pardon the pun behind the venture – aided and abetted by Bridget Doyle and Chairman of Wexford Supporters Arthur Quinn. Tremendous credit is due to the three of them for getting 44 teams to pledge their support in these times of economic difficulty and even the Gods showed their benevolence on the day providing good weather for the competition.
Chairman Arthur Quinn expressed the thanks of the Supporters Club to all especially Carlton House Hotel for their most generous sponsorship of the event, the President of Wexford Golf Club Paul Lauhoff for providing the excellent facilities, Chef Phelim Byrne for the delicious repas, county footballers Joey Wadding and Rob Tierney for attending the presentation of prizes and above all Des and Bridget for their trojan work. Arthur then called on Michelle Ryan Marketing Manager with Carlton House to present the prizes to the winning teams, especially overall winners on a score of 83 – Jim McGee, Alan Tighe, Mark Mullen and Shane McLoughlin.
