Club Notes: 2nd Sept 2018

Marquin Cup Revived

After a few dormant years, the Social Committee under Mattie Boyle and Deirdre Garrett revived the multi sport Marquin Cup, this suits an all rounder who can play tennis, pitch and putt, skittles and table tennis. A few pitch and putt players showed some promise at tennis, many people enjoyed the doubles table tennis and the skittles events. Hillview appreciate the sponsorship of Tony Hennessy, Building Contractor for his sponsorship of this event. After 2 sessions the Cup and Plate teams were known and the finals were keenly contested on Friday 31st August. The winning Cup team were James Cleary, Mira Hinner, John Hannon and Mary Wall, the runners up were, Ger Cronin, Seanie O'Connor, Paddy Kenrick and Alison Walsh. The Plate winners were David Cahill, Dave Barry, Annmaria Quigley and Aine Madden and runners up were Richard Madden, Kyle Kennedy, Siobhan Slater and Angela Hennessy. Also thanks to Frank Darrer and Ann Kendrick for running the Barbecue. Well done to all, it was great fun and we may organise some more novelty events.
