Cattle run amuck at Woodstock Golf Club

Officials at Woodstock Golf Club in Shanaway, Ennis hope to have a reduced course open for play this weekend after cattle caused considerable damage to the greens and fairways. As many as 40 cattle got onto the course last Friday night, resulting in management having to close the course to play. Staff arriving for work early on Saturday morning observed a herd of cattle on the course and found up to 10 greens damaged. Particularly serious damage was caused to the sixth, eighth and 13th greens, as well as to the 13th fairway. The course was immediately closed, resulting in the cancellation of weekend competitions and the loss of a significant amount of green fees.

As we speak, we are awaiting a visit from insurance representatives to assess the damage. Hopefully, we will be able …

A wheel challenge for the late Seamus

HUNDREDS of cyclists will set off from Ennis this month for a very special fundraising event and to remember an avid member of a local cycling club, who died suddenly last year. This year’s Dolmen Challenge Tour is being dedicated to the memory of the late Seamus Mullane, a keen cyclist and member of Dolmen Cycle Club. The father-of-four was also known to many through his work with Aer Lingus in Shannon and, more recently, the court service in Ennis. As part of the cycle, the participants will pass the Mullane family home in Kilnaboy and will mark a minute’s remembrance at the nearby graveyard. The cycle will take place on April 27, leaving from the Woodstock Golf and Country Club on the Shanaway Road at 10am.
