O’Dea’s Hotel Winter League Play-Offs

After 12 weekends of rain, wind, frost, snow, and some sunshine over the winter, it all came down to the play-offs where the top 6 teams battled it out for the top spot this weekend. Heading into the playoffs we had the Finnerty Bandits, The Hackers, The Eagles, Finns Fellas, Morans Boys and finally The Undercover Brothers. The favourites, Finnerty’s bandits, didn’t bottle it and produced a fine score of 139 points (39, 35, 33, 32) to add to their top qualifying bonus score of 6 points. They ended up with an impressive winning margin of 9 points. Well done to Benjy Moran, Adrian Finnerty, David Keane, Ambrose O’Connor, Mike Rourke, and Finbar Drayne. Second place was not so straight forward with The Eagles and Undercover Brothers tying for second on 136 points. Congratulations to The Undercover Brothers coming from the last qualifying spot to tie second, their 5th card formed as a tie breaker with David Gunter’s (The Undercover Brothers) 29 points winning over Noel Tierney’s (The Eagles) 28 points. Commiserations to all others who have played in the league and thank you from the Men’s Club for making golf more enjoyable over the winter. Cheers to all.
