The Colm Doyle Memorial Golf Challenge Cup, sponsored by Suir Engineering Ltd., Mooncoin, Co Kilkenny, was held on March 25th/26th 2005 and raised €920

Pauline Doyle, proprietor of Suir Engineering, generously chose our Charity to benefit from the proceeds. The Colm Doyle Memorial Golf Classic is a memorial to Pauline’s son, Colm, who died at a very young age. Pauline has already contributed generously to our many fundraisers.

The Golf Classic was played over two days and three golf courses – The Gold Coast, Dungarvan and West Waterford. Ten teams participated, including our own – The Marfans – Liam Tobin, Kieran McGrath and Michael McGrath. The weather was beautiful, giving full advantage to the magnificent views of the Atlantic Ocean, Dungarvan Bay, The Comeragh and Knockmealdown Mountains.

  • First Prize went to Eoin Doyle’s team: – Paul Walsh, Damian Power and Paul Haley.
  • Second Prize went to O’Sheas Engineering: – Kieran Quigley, Denis Conway Snr and Maurice Fehilly.
  • Third Prize went to H&MV Engineering: – Gerry Phelan, Tom Murphy and John Grant.

    Big thanks to Pauline Doyle and Kieran Quigley for their generosity. Congratulations Kieran on a job very well done.
