MILLSTREET GOLF SOCIETY
CAPTAIN: Mr. Donogh McAuliffe
PRESIDENT: Mr. Chris Twomey
Welcome to our new golfing year, below are the main points from our AGM held on the 28th of January.
|To try and re-generate interest in the society it was decided to do away with team competitions and have 4 single competitions at the courses listed below.It was also decided to have a golfer of the Year and the overall winner from the 4 competitions will receive The John Cronin Memorial Trophy.
|Again we appeal to people when entering competitions can you please pay the entry fee on entry, collection of money is becoming a big job at outings and the committee have enough to do without this extra job.
||Sponsors were again thanked for their support in 2009 and we look forward to their continued support in 2010. Due to the current economic climate sponsorship of an outing has been reduced to €100 , this includes free golf on the day.
||Membership for 2010 is €20. Please fill in the attached form and return with money before the 26th of February to the address below,only paid up members will be contacted for outings.

A member of the Irish Workers Party and a Socialist and a true Republican
And he loved Ireland and the Irish Language Neil Healy was a very special man
A family person and a quiet achiever he was one worthy of far greater note
I’d like to write a poem in his honour were I born with the genius of a poet.
One who did speak the Irish Language fluently not many like him that seems sad to say
In the changing face of twenty first century Ireland in the ever changing World of today
A loyal supporter of Joe Sherlock of the Workers Party to the colours he believed in he was true
To many one who did choose to be different for that alone great credit is his due.
People like he was make a case for re-incarnation I’m only saying how it does seem to me
He did love places distant from Duhallow old towns in France in Celtic Brittany
His passing a huge loss to Celtic Culture he is one who will be hard to replace
In Millstreet he will always be remembered where his will live as a remembered face.
He always stood for what he did believe in one who was as honest as the word can be
And ’tis sad to think that on the streets of Millstreet he is one that in the flesh we never more will see
But the World was better for him living in it of him that would be a fair thing to say
Conchubar O hEalaithe is one well worth remembering and good memories of him will live for many a day.
