Edenmore returned from Cork in the All-Ireland honours thanks to a memorable Intermediate Cup triumph against East Cork.

Gillian Murphy registered a win by 3&2 and Victoria Hannon wrapped up her game on 7&6.

Colleen Hanna came out on top with a 2&1 scoreline to secure the overall glory in the Private Home Care Inter-Club Championships.

Cherry Logan lost on the 18th green and Louise Gaw finished down by 6&5.

“Many thanks to all the ladies for their enthusiasm all season,” said a club spokesperson. “Thanks also to the caddies for their hard work and support across the matches.

“Congratulations, of course, to the ladies on winning an All-Ireland pennant.

“Monkstown proved a challenging and exciting venue for the players, with the parkland course in pristine condition.

“It was great to have all the supporters down from the Ulster district.”

Edenmore’s Intermediate Cup semi-final finished in a defeat of County Longford, with lady captain Gaw holing her first shot on the par three for the perfect start.

Logan won 2 up and Gaw recorded a 3&1 victory, Hanna finished in front by 5&4, Hannon was 6&5 up and Murphy finished with half.

Edenmore lined out against East Cork in the Junior Foursomes semi-final but finished down overall.

Logan and Hannon lost out on the 18th, along with Gaw and Hanna. Murphy and Stephanie Watson were up when called in on the final hole.

Vivienne Wigton was team captain, with Karen Legrand and Sally Cushnahan the reserves.
