SMA Golf competition
Cork SMA priest, Fr Michael Kidney, came from third place overnight to win the annual SMA Golf competition at the Douglas Golf Club, Cork. The senior of three octogenarians in the competition, playing off a handicap of 39, Fr Michael showed much younger players that despite not playing regularly one can sometimes be better than those who play much more often!
Fr Martin O'Farrell (30) came in 2nd with Fr Michael Flattery (18) in third place.
The Organiser of the competition - Fr Hugh B Harkin - expressed his happiness at another enjoyable event which brought together SMA priests from the different SMA communities in Ireland, London and several men home from their Missions in Nigeria, South Africa and Zambia.
Well done Fr Michael! And sincere thanks to the Douglas Golf Club who generously make their facilities available to us each year. Complete results.
