Close finish as Bernie McQuade clinches Lady President's Day honours at Omagh

SATURDAY at Omagh Golf Club was Lady President Patricia (Patsy) Harkin's big day. The course was in excellent condition thanks to Richard and his greenkeeping staff and the kind weather made for a great day of golf.

At the evening prizegiving, the lady president thanked everyone who helped make her day special. She expressed her thanks to her committee, Mary McBride, for providing the wonderful floral arrangements, Joan Poyntz for dressing the chairs, the bar staff and to Lorna and her catering staff who provided a splendid meal.
