There were mixed fortunes for the teams involved this weekend. The South Leinster Trophy team got their campaign off to a great start with a hard fought win against Gowran. The 3 home players all won, John Hartley (kk) winning 3&2, Mick Malone winning 4&3 and Captain Paschal Bolger winning on the 18th. In Gowran, John Hartley (wx) and Tom Crosbie were out of luck, but Richie Aylward secured the winning point with a great win on the 18th. Jack Murphy was called in from the 19th. The team now meets the winners of Castlecomer and The Heritage in the next round.
The Barton Shield team missed out on a place in the knockout stages by a frustrating margin of one shot in their regional qualifying event at Rosslare. Jack & Michael Ryan (78) and Robbie Farrell & Derek Ronan (81) recorded a team total of 159, however Carlow took fourth place with 158 behind Arklow, Rosslare & Kilkenny.
