Well done to our Provincial Towns team on their narrow win over Mount Temple.  We lost four matches away from home and won one with Thomas Moylan coming to the fore.  At home Pat Madden won 3&2, John Ryan won 3&2, Capt. Paschal Troy won 5&3, which left the final match with Tommy Hogan to decide the outcome.  A great par from Tommy on the 19th hole secured victory.
