Congratulations to the Coláiste Choilm senior golf team of Sean Geary,Jack Taylor, Zak Collins, Stephen Riordan and Keelan McCarthy who won the Munster Senior Schools Final lately. Thanks to their coach Mr. Kieran Styles and best of luck to them in the National Final in April 2019.
Colaiste Choilm from Ballincollig won their first Munster Pennant when they defeated De La Salle Waterford in the Munster final of the Irish Schools Senior Championship. Played in great conditions in Castlemartyr, the final was a very competitive affair, with the match swinging towards De La Salle early on before Colaiste Choilm came back strong. De La Salle won the first two matches, Rory Milne won on the 18th while Alex King won on the 17th. Zak Collins won on the 18th to put a point on the board for Colaiste Choilm, and Jack Taylor added a second with a 4&3 win. It all came down to the last match, Muskerry’s Stephen Riordan was one up playing 17, and when he won that hole with a great birdie the match was over with the win going to the Cork college. Both Colaiste Choilm and De La Salle had good wins in the morning semi-finals, Colaiste Choilm beat St Francis College Rochestown while De La Salle beat St Brendan’s Killarney.
