Killymoon beat Ballybunion 3-2 at Royal Tara GC to win the Revive Active Fourball National Final.
“It’s a great honour for our small club to win this event,” said Catherine Irwin, team captain of Killymoon.
“It is our first win and I am so proud of this team for putting our Cookstown club on the map!”
Killymoon edged past Lucan 3-2 in the semi-finals and expected another tough encounter against their Kerry opponents in the final.
Carmel Hagan and captain Irwin – leading from the front – wrapped up the first point for the Co Tyrone club on the 15th.
In the top match, the Ballybunion pairing of Mary Sheehy and Louise Griffin looked to be closing in on victory playing the 18th but Diane McIvor and Avril Marshall fought back to win the last and then take the point on the 20th.
With two matches already finalised, Killymoon needed just one more point to claim victory.
Ballybunion’s Cartiona Corrigan and Pudge O’Reilly claimed a 3&1 win to keep their hopes alive but Kathryn Kerr and Colleen Conway would not be denied with 23-handicapper Conway, sealing the deal with a birdie on the last.
