Duggan Cup.
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.

Pierce Purcell.
This 3rd round match was played on Sat 17th with Callan having 3 at home and 2 away. The home team was John Mitchell / Niall O’Connor, Liam & James Rafter, Paddy Donovan / Dylan Kealy while the away players were Benny McGuire / Tommy Coyne and Peter Ryan / Gordon Peppard. The first home match was won on the 15th while the next 2 lost on the 17th and 16th respectively. Rosslare won one of the 2 matches down there while Peter Ryan and Gordon Peppard were called in.
Thanks to Johnny Kennedy for pulling a large panel together and to all of those who turned up for the practice sessions, a good sign for the future.

South Leinster
Callan’s match against Gowran on Thursday 8th July went down to the wire in this competition where 7 players take part in Singles match play so the first team to win 4 matches gets through to the next round.
With 4 matches at home and 3 away, Callan looked in good shape with 2 wins in Gowran from Tony O’Driscoll and P J Farrell and 1 from Patrick Dalton at home. Shane Kenny lost on the 17th in Gowran.
Two of the home matches were decided on the 18th Green with Joe Tierney and Brian O’Donnell missing out so it was down to the last player where Stephen Kelly was unlucky to be beaten on the 20th (2nd extra hole). Well done to all involved in managing and playing for this team, they were so close to winning in all of the 4 matches that were lost.
Jimmy Bruen
This match was played on Saturday afternoon with 3 matches in Carlow and 2 at home which was a tough task given the large membership Carlow can draw on and their course being one of the most challenging in the region. The away pairs proved up to the task with James Logue and Sean Lyster winning 3 and 2. James Holden and David Morris were beaten by the same score while Nicky Morrissey and Eoin O’Sullivan were all square after 18 and heading off down the 19th.
Meanwhile back in Callan both matches were ding dong affairs the whole way. Any advantage was soon dragged back and there was no time where either side could be picked as likely winners. After 18 holes the first pairing of James Donovan and Johnny Kennedy were tied and so headed off down the 19th and then the 20th. Meanwhile our 2nd pairing of Keith O’Dwyer and John Mitchell were 1 up on the 18th tee and halved that hole so we finally had 1 winner in Callan.
Back to the 1st match which by now was on the 21st which was halved as was the 22nd. Finally on the 23rd (5th extra hole) following a great drive by Johnny Kennedy and a good first putt by him, James Donovan holed the most important putt for a deserved win for Callan.
The final match in Carlow was then called in so the overall result is 3.5 to 1.5 and on to the quarter finals to be played on or before July 25th against either Gowran or Rathdowney.
Barton Cup.
This brought Callan up against Borris who had despatched Kilkenny in the previous round and so were a side to be given full respect. Callan had 3 matches at home and 2 away.
Niall O’Sullivan and Niall O’Connor won the 1st match in Borris on the 18th while James Holden and David Morris were beaten. At home in Callan, Ross Holden and Liam Rafter won 2 and 1, Denis Murphy and Sean Lyster won on the 18th and Richie Condon with Eddie Culleton were called in while looking like they would win their match so the overall result was 3.5 to 1.5. The next round is against Rosslare to be played on or before August 1st.  
Upcoming matches
The Duggan cup 2nd round is Tuesday July 13th at 3.30 pm V Wicklow.
The next round of the Pierce Purcell against Rosslare is provisionally on Saturday 17th at 3.00pm.
Best of Luck to all involved and your support would be appreciated.
