The Glencar Inn held it’s most prestigious outing of the season on Saturday last, 26th September, with Mr. Sean Gilroy’s Captain’s Day.
Playing on the most scenic and luscious parkland course in Donegal, Letterkenny Golf Club, it was the long hitting Eddie Margey who produced the winning score. Chipping in to a close second was short game specialist Kieran Sweeney while the cautious Michael Mc Elhinney was third.
