Brian Matthews was never a member of County Louth Golf Club in his life, he played with Seapoint GC.
But last Wednesday the Baltray Juniors played their second annual outing for the Brian Matthews Trophy which raises funds for Development of Junior golf at County Louth Golf Club.
Brian lived in Baltray village but sadly succumbed to cancer at the age of 51. So well-known was he at County Louth Golf Club and such was the esteem that he was held in thanks to his support for junior golf, that the trophy was named after him.
