Ireland triumphant

23 May 2014

FOR the past 13 years, the clergy of the Church of England and the Church of Ireland have played an annual golf match on courses alternating between each country. This year, it took place at the Powerscourt Golf Club, Enniskerry, in Dublin & Glendalough diocese. It was hotly contested, I am told, and the Irish team won by 11 to seven.

It is a two-round tournament: a foursomes matchplay in the morning, and a singles matchplay in the afternoon, and both teams were captained by archdeacons: the Archdeacon of Glendalough, the Ven. Ricky Rountree; and the Archdeacon of Sherborne, the Ven. Paul Taylor. The teams are seen here outside the Powerscourt Golf Club, where the presentation dinner was held at the end of the day.
