Frank Muldoon Memorial competition

Four Masters G.A.A. Club held the Frank Muldoon Memorial Golf Competition at Donegal Golf Club (Murvagh) on Saturday.

Almost 50 golfers supported this annual event and played on a wet morning but a brighter afternoon.

Rooney’s Centra, Clar Road, Donegal Town were the main sponsors and thanks are again extended to Gerry Rooney who has been supporting this event for the past number of years. The weather conditions did not effect the scoring too much and there were many good scores returned.

The winner was Francis Brogan (7) with 37 points. This was a fine score from the veteran Murvagh golfer and got him a hamper and 1st Prize. Second Prize and a hamper went to Sean Martin Jr (13) with 36 points. Third Prize and a hamper went to Emlyn Hughes (18) on 35 points.

In four was Aidey Gallagher (16) on 34 points. Aidey also won the Longest Drive on the ninth while Francis Brogan got closest to the pin on the 13th.
