First ever Sacred Heart Golf Classic a great success

Front Page

The first Sacred Heart Secondary School Golf Classic took place last Friday in County Louth Golf Club as a fundraising event for Sports Facilities Development in the school.

27 teams competed in the Sacred Heart Golf Classic in County Louth Golf Club (Baltray) on Friday 6th April. On arrival each team was greeted by Sacred Heart Principal, Ms. Leoni Carroll, Ms. Deirdre Lynch (Deputy Principal), teachers -James Campbell (event organiser), Miriam O’Hara, Catherine Horan and Melanie Kirwan. Retired Sacred Heart teacher and keen golfer Joe Mc Laughlin was also there to greet the golfers. Team members received their scorecards and a goodie bag sponsored by McGuirks Golf, Dunnes Stores Southgate and Lynch Fruit & Veg Dunleer. Despite the bad weather conditions, spirits were high and many Sacred Heart students were there to support the teams. Former Ryder Cup player, Des Smyth was also in attendance. 

The first team to tee off was Sacred Heart Students, Carenza Rock (Head Girl), Bronagh James, Áine McMahon and Ellen Cooney. The team was kindly sponsored by the McCullen family. 

It was a cold, wet and windy start to the day but all golfers were treated to warm soup and snacks at the 12th hole. The sun came out in the afternoon and the wind subsided. Players competed in three additional competitions; Hole in one competition to win a Seat Ateca Jeep (valued at €30,980) was set up at the 17th hole as well as Nearest to Pin and Longest Drive competitions. Each team member was treated to a delicious two course meal in the clubhouse on completion of the course.
