Callan played Wicklow on Tuesday 13th with 3 away and 2 at home in this 2nd round match.
The knowledge the home team had of their course and particularly on the Greens was a major factor with the deciding match being sealed by Wicklow on the 18th against the middle pairing. Away team was Pat Parle, Tony O’Driscoll, Denis Collins, Jim Wellwood, Peter Ryan and Richard Gypps. At home Paddy Donovan and Johnny Kennedy won on the 19th while John Ryan and Jimmy Dunne were still all square after 19 when called in. Well done to all involved for fighting to the end and thanks to Kevin O’Driscoll for managing the team.
