At times there is a risk that our communications may come across as grim warnings, interspersed with bad news. I am happy on this occasion not to be reporting either thanks to some neighbours who have taken the initiative to organise a golf outing for residents of the Pines and Hadleigh.
Liam Delaney, Noel O’Reilly and Cathal O’Reilly have volunteered to organise a Pines / Hadleigh Scramble in Westmanstown Golf Club on Friday September 18th. They have provisionally booked tee times from 1.30pm to 3pm and we are currently looking to get details of those who would be interested in playing on the day.
It is open to ladies and gentlemen and the cost for the golf will be €20 per person (includes green fees and a modest contribution towards prizes) – or €5 for residents who are also members of Westmanstown.
If you would like to invite a guest that would also be fine. There will be some food after the golf in Westmanstown (probably around 7.30pm) and non golfers are very welcome to join at this stage. We are working with the caterers there on some simple food options which should come at less than €15 per person. If you are interested in playing on the day or just joining for food and a drink afterwards I would ask you to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org which we will route directly to Liam, Noel and Cathal.
Alternatively you can contact Liam, Noel, Cathal or myself directly and we will capture your details. We are not looking for money at this stage but please indicate whether you would be interested in the golf or joining for food afterwards. For the golfers please include the names of each player, their club or society handicap and home club on the email.
Thanks to Liam, Noel and Cathal for taking this initiative. The development of community spirit is an important part of neighbourhood watch and if there are other suggestions on how we can improve this, we are very open to hearing your ideas.
