Inaugural Ranelagh Gaels Golf Classic

Ranelagh Gaels is running its inaugural Golf Classic, which will take place at Stackstown Golf Course on Thursday, August 16.

The event will raise much-needed funds which will go towards the running of our dozens of underage teams.

Tee-times for teams of four (€200) are still available in this 18 hole stableford competition and there will also be prizes for nearest the pin and longest drive.

There are sponsorship opportunities for tee boxes (€30) still available, with dinner and snacks provided for competitors.

Stuart Banks (stuartbanks2001@yahoo.ie) and Frank Wall (fmwall1@gmail.com) are organisers – just drop them a line if you want to get involved. Stuart and Frank deserve great credit for taking the lead on organising this project – thanks lads!

Féile History Made at Ranelagh Gaels

Ranelagh Gaels entered a team into Dublin LGFA’s Féile competition for the first time – and it was a brilliant experience for all concerned.

Féile is an Under-14 competition played off on a blitz basis, with clubs divided into divisions. The winners of each county go forward to the national Féile.

Ranelagh’s oldest team in 2018 are Under-13 so they were playing a year above themselves, but the girls still put in a string of great performances and only missed out on a semi-final spot on scoring difference. Read the rest
