The Leinster Women and Girls’ Teams have had double success in Shannon Golf Club at the 2017 Interprovincial Matches.
The Leinster Women, who last won in 2014 at Tramore, overcame Connacht 6.5 – 1.5 making it 3 wins from 3 while the Girls’ mirrored their senior counterparts, dominating each of their three encounters.
Foursomes partners Kate Lanigan (Hermitage) and Ellen O’Gorman (Milltown) both had a 100% record, winning 6 out of 6 matches. Beth Coulter (Kirkistown Castle) meanwhile, helped her Ulster team to 2nd place by contributing 5 points from 6.
Needing to beat Connacht on the final day, the Leinster Women started positively, winning 2 of the morning foursomes matches. Wins in the afternoon from Coyle-Diez, Dowling, Murphy and Casey confirmed their title as Women’s Interprovincial Champions 2017.
“It’s great to get the win this week” said Leinster Captain Mary Dowling, “We had a strong team this year and the girls have been great all week, they kept in there even when things were looking tight and I’m very proud of them.”
The Interprovincials next year returns to Connacht where Castledargan will host for the second time having hosted the event previously in 2013.
