There was a great turn out for the Dan Bolger Memorial Fundraiser Open Competition played in teams of two – best score to count at each hole. The handicap limits were 20 for men and 30 for ladies. Despite the bad weather and miserable forecast there was a good turnout and a total of €1700 was raised for the Carlow/Kilkenny Homecare Team which Kerri Bolger will present to them.
