Staff V’s Students Ryder Cup Golf Match 2015

During October mid-term and on the wettest Tuesday in the history of the state the inaugural staff v’s students golf match took place.  The venue was an impeccably presented Corrstown Golf Club and the mood was lively and boisterous despite the best efforts of Mother Nature. Credit has to be given to both 10 man teams for completing the contest given the conditions and it went down to the wire and indeed to the last match, where the students ‘anchor team’ of Cian O’ Brien and Eoin Dunne overcame the experienced staff pairing of Mr. Cotter and Mr. Hastings on the 17th green.  This meant a victory once again for the students, on a scoreline of 3-2.  This is the second year in a row the students have won this prestigious award, and deservedly so.  The other two wins for the students came from Sean Kellett & Luke McCarthy who triumphed over Mr. Lowry and Mr. McCafferty, and Adam Duffy & Alex Tyrell who defeated Mr. Deneher and Mr. S Moore.  From a staff point of view, well done to Mr. Brown and Mr. J Moore who defeated Dean Duffy & Carl Smith, and to Mr. Kelly and Mr. Lynch who showed no mercy in their win over Adam Keogh & Tadgh Kellett.  For the students, this is further proof of the strides they have taken over the years and the vast improvements in their game that will someday hopefully wield a Leinster Golf title in the St. Aidan’s colours.  Credit also goes to both captains for their efforts in organising and motivating their teams and we all now look forward to the social outing that will take place over the February midterm.
