Greetings to all,

Outing number 4 of the HIOGS is very special this year as it is Captain’s Prize away trip. As you know Captain Donal has arranged a great value trip to Dundrum House Hotel, Dundrum, Co. Tipperary   E34 A409. (4zero9) !! The eir code will be of help to find the resort for anyone not familiar with Dundrum.

On the day:                 Tee Off                11am

Format                 Single Stableford

Starter to be appointed on the day

Card Checking       Mary Spollen and Michael Tully

Presentation of prizes will take place after Dinner.

Please note: bookings through Donal Doherty 087 2460379 and NOT through the hotel. Donal has buggies organised and again booking buggy is through him.

Details of cost and accommodation are on the “flier” I emailed/posted last week.

Looking forward to seeing a great turn-out and hopefully, we will have a great time in fine weather.

Rose OHanlon, Hon Sec.
