Ladies Golf Club Notes | Concrawood Golf Club | Ireland
6th February 2018
Concra Wood Castleblayney Ladies Golf Club.
The entire membership of Castleblayney Golf Club was shocked and saddened on hearing the news of the sad passing of our much loved and long standing member Mrs Rose Mc Bride R.I.P. Rose was a tireless supporter of the Ladies club, from serving on committee, supporting the weekly competitions, to representing the club in interclub matches. It was in match play and team events that Rose excelled and played her part over the years in bringing silverware back to Castleblayney. A keen golfer Rose featured on numerous occasions in the winners enclosure. One of her many notable wins was in 2009 in Concra Wood when she claimed Lady Captains prize. The high esteem in which Rose was held was so evident by the large turnout of her fellow golfers for Guard of honour at her funeral. We extend the sympathies of the Ladies club to her husband Tom, daughters Aisling and Siobhan, sons Dermot and Thomas.
