Edward Harvey and Cathal Roarty thanked Mick Mc Ginley for his generous sponsorship. Mick has been a great supporter of the College and the Committee were delighted that the Mc Rory Cup player of 1956 was behind them once again.
The Committee also paid compliment to the Letterkenny Golf for hosting the event and the excellent condition of the course and players should really enjoy Open week starting on the 6th June on this great parkland. Brown of the green restaurant presented lovely food all day which was well received.
