Congratulations to our golf team who played in the Loreto Golf All Ireland Competition in Wexford Golf Club yesterday. Further congratulations to Kate Walker who came 2nd overall. She shot a super round of 39 and narrowly missed out on winning the competition. The whole team battled rain and wind and had some fabulous shots.
