Birr Mens Club

Congratulations to President Liam Delaney on a very successful Presidents Prize weekend which was held on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th July. The weather was mostly kind to us and we had a great turnout of players. It was a (GOY) competition and the scoring was excellent. Well done to Niall Shortt on shooting a nett 60 to win. We had our presentation on Sunday evening at 8pm. Mr Captain Aidan was MC for the night and welcomed everyone who attended and stressed the need for social distancing. Aidan talked about the commitment President Liam has given to the club since joining in 1988 and the trojan work he puts in throughout his time involved on various committees over the years. On a lighter note Aidan mentioned Liam being involved with his 4 ball and about the various choice of hats he wears when playing golf. One in particular he joked about was what he was told were worn by the Colombian special forces also a trilby was another one.

Captain Aidan handed over to President Liam who thanked him for asking him to be his President for the year 2020 and also his kind words and support. Liam said it has been a great honour to serve the Club he loves so well and thanked Francie who is always available to help in any way he can and also to Eoghan and his course staff who had the course in pristine condition for the whole weekend.

Liam thanked his major Sponsor Birr Credit Union and especially welcomed the CEO Mr Andrew Barrett who attended and played our course on Sunday and was especially complimentary of the condition of our course. Liam spoke about the importance of recognising sponsors and also about supporting businesses and said all his prizes were bought locally also about how lucky golf is our sport to be able to enjoy in these turbulent times. He thanked Lady President Brid for her hard graft and support throughout the year and wished both her and Lady Captain Laura well for their joint day on the 15th August. Liam congratulated all the winners and then handed back to Captain Aidan who asked Andrew Barrett to do the Presentation of Prizes  which are as follows.
