Gallery: Everyone's a winner at Meath Ladies Golf Classic
As appears to the case for Meath Ladies in recent years the gods smiled kindly on them last week when they hosted their second Champions Golf Classic in glorious sunshine at Headfort Kells.
Following the heroics of their first All-Ireland SFC crown in 2021 and the subsequent hugely successful golf classic in Knightsbrook Meath LGFA celebrated retaining the Brendan Martin Cup with another golf classic in Headfort.
In between the thunderstorms and downpours Headfort was baked in glorious sunshine as all tee-times were filled for the Back-2-Back All-Ireland Champions Golf Classic, as it was billed.
However, victory in the four-man scramble went outside the county with Writech Mullingar providing the winning team. There was some consolation for local teams in the runners-up prizes with Hot Shot Coffee from Dunshaughlin taking second place with Donaghmore/Ashbourne GAA club supplying the third placed finishers and Ratoath and St Peter's Dunboyne claiming fourth and fifth places respectively.
Former Meath manager Andy McEntee led the McEntee family to sixth place, while Simonstown Gaels representatives took seventh.
Unfortunately the Meath Chronicle team finished well down the field!
The longest drive of the day was claimed by Donaghmore/Ashbourne's Paul Doherty, while nearest the pint went to Owen Cullen from the Hot Shot Coffee team.
"We were blessed with the weather once again and I want to thank everyone who supported the Golf Classic again this year. It was a huge success and without their support it wouldn't have been possible," saidf Meath LGFA PRO Fearghal Harney.
"Headfort was in superb condition as always, the sun shined all day and while most of the golf was excellent, the fine weather couldn't inspire everyone - only joking. I'm sure everyone enjoyed their day. "I have to say a huge thanks to all the clubs and businesses that sponsored holes and tee boxes and to all the teams who played. Hopefully we'll be back again next year, celebrating a three-in-a-row," concluded Harney.
