Saturday/Sunday

McCambridge Duffy Pairs


The eagerly awaited McCambridge Duffy Pairs was the competition this weekend at Prehen. The dire weather warnings from the forecasters of doom at the Met Office proved wide of the mark and the competition was played in perfect conditions on both days. By the end of the day one play visitors Mr Bernard Kelly and Mr Ciaran Murphy, with a 47 point total, held a slender one shot lead over Mr David Spence and Mr Pat Touhy. But no less than sixteen pairs had surmounted the forty-point barrier and all had the potential to overhaul the leaders on Sunday. Sustaining a high level of performance over two days is always a difficult task and, sadly, Mr Kelly and Mr Murphy faded to a credible, but outside the prize circle, final seventh place on Sunday. However, they had the satisfaction of picking up the Saturday Daily Prize.


After a decent but unspectacular Saturday score of 42 points Mr Adrian Leckey and Mr Stuart McClelland found themselves back in fourteenth place with much work to be done to even get into the prize positions. However, as all those positioned above them floundered, Messrs Leckey and McClelland turned on the magic and added 46 points on the second competition day for a winning total of 88 points. Messrs Spence and Touhy continued their good work and added a further 41 points to finish on 87 and take second spot, Messrs David McIvor and Connor McKnight carded 41 points on the second day  to finish in third with 86 points. Fourth prize went to Messrs Gary Leckey and George Pearson who added 42 on Sunday to their Saturday 43 for an 85 point total. Messrs Ernie Heywood and Jonathan Heywood finished on 85 points to take fifth place and Messrs Gary Brown and Darren Heaney took the final sixth prize on the same score. Sunday’s Daily prize was won with 44 points by the pairing of Messrs Rory O’Hare and Noel O’Donnell.


The prize-giving will take place on Saturday 10th September and prize winners are asked to attend.
