The Annual Golf outing attracted 21 past pupils and their guests to Greystones Golf Club on Friday 8th September 2023. This is the first time the event has been held in Greystones in living memory.

We were delighted to welcome the new Deputy Principal, Ronan Coffey, who represented the staff and Robbie Murphy who represented the students. Robbie, a member of Bray GC, had the best score of the day with 37 points playing off 7 to win the Visitors Prize.

Following a very wet summer, the course was basked in glorious sunshine and presented in mint condition.  The golf was not as hot as in recent years but a most enjoyable day was had by all, with an excellent meal served up by Olivia and the catering team, while France v New Zealand in the Rugby World Cup played in the background.

The nines were won by Gerry Kenny 18 points (front) and Mark Mortell 18 points (back). In 3rd place was Greystones member and President of the Past Pupils Union in 2008 and 2009, Barry King with 33 points off 22.

The runner up this year is defending champion David Meehan, European Club with 33 points off 7. He wins on a count back.

The winner of the Scannell Cup for 2023 is Kevin Keyes Junior of Greystones and Beach Park who scored a very respectable 34 points off a handicap of 16. This is Kevin’s second victory having won The Scannell Cup in 2002. (Pictured is Alan Keyes picking up the Scannell Cup on behalf of his brother)

Previous winners of The Scannell Cup competed for the Past Winners Prize and Morgan Walsh, prevailed with 31 points.

It was a pleasure to welcome Sean Doyle, aged 93, who won the Longest Drive having travelled from Co. Sligo for the outing. In the raffle, Simon Noone won the 4 ball to Greystones.

We hope you can join us in September 2024 when the outing is scheduled to return to Greystones.

Kind regards
