21 September 2008
Faithlegg were crowned All-Ireland Ladies Fourball Champions following victory over Galway at the final of the 2008 Miele All-Ireland Interclub Fourball Championships at Mount Juliet Golf Club on 14th September.
Gerardine Neville and Olive Breen drew first blood for the Galway side when they closed out Aisling O’Shea and Siobhan Furlong on the 15th green. Faithlegg’s Valerie Power and Gillian Hogan then levelled the tie with an impressive 8 and 6 win over Jane Whiriskey and Raymonde Standun. Jenny Gleeson and Eilis Strappe halved with Deirdre Costello and Mairead O’Shaughnessy in the final match while the pairing of Lucy Fowler and Katherine Grant Faithlegg brought the title across the Shannon with a 5 and 3 victory over Sheelagh Kearney and Kathleen Ivers.
In Saturday’s semi-finals, Galway defeated a luckless Cushendall side by 3½ -½ while Donabate fought hard against Faithlegg but Faithlegg proved too strong with a 3½ -½ victory.
