Junior Schools, Irish Stroke play Championship Finals 2015
22nd April, 2015

Leinster Champions Ashbourne Community School headed last Wednesday to the All-Ireland Junior stroke play Golf championship final. The finals of this event were hosted at the beautiful Farnham Estate, Co Cavan. The squad for the final was, Stephan Campbell,
Simon Purcell, Sean Yourell and Brian Gleeson.


On a wonderful day for golf, the team put in a heroic performance to finish second behind the Ulster champions, Ballyclare High School by the narrowest of margins. (one stroke).   It was a truly great achievement by the team, considering that Ballycare were competing for the third time at this level. Stephen Campbell from Ashbourne Community School was the joint leading scorer on the day with a super score of 72, a level par round.

The team would like to thank Ashbourne Golf Club for presenting them with customised clothing to celebrate their participation at this National event.
