We had a great Sandycove golf outing last Friday in Old Conna Golf Club with 39 participants. The weather was fantastic and while the golf was competitive, a relaxed fun day was had by all.

It’s nice to remember Dick Dolan with this event. He served as our President in 1991 but it is as organiser of the golf that he is probably best remembered. Dick’s contribution to Sandycove was immense. In giving his time and enthusiasm to make things happen, he embodied the unique qualities on which our club is built. He got the best of people with his gentle manner and kind words of encouragement.

It was great to be joined on the day by members of Dick’s family including his daughter, Eileen, son-in-law , Richard and granddaughter, Eva.
