Woodstock duo, Aideen Walsh and Aine Donegan are to collect international caps while representing their country over the coming weeks.

Aideen has been included in the Carey Cup team who play at Carton House on October 12 and 13 and will make history through her involvement. The Carey Cup sees Ireland play the Metropolitan golf Association in the biannual event. The 2021 competition will see an expanded format introduced with the teams expanding from six to ten players.

Four women will join six men in the Irish team, when the event takes place at the Montgomerie Course at Carton HousePaula Grant (Lisburn), Kate Lanigan (Hermitage), Rachel Thompson (Cork) and Woodstock’s Aideen Walsh will make history by becoming the first Irish women to compete in the event.

Áine will be one of four players to represent Ireland at the Spirit International in Texas from November 4 to 6. The biannual event takes place at Whispering Pines GC, and will see the Irish team compete in team and individual events in a 54-hole competition.

Sara Byrne (Douglas), Paul Conroy (Enniscorthy), Sam Murphy (Portumna) and Donegan will compete in the men’s and women’s competitions, with 20 countries being represented.

Áine earned her first-career top-10 finish at the Badger Invitational when she posted Indiana’s first round under par for the 2021-22 season with a 2-under 70. She carded a team-high five birdies on the final day of the tournament. She finished tied for 10th in the tournament with a three-round score of 220 (76-74-70).

There was further reason to celebrate in Woodstock Golf Club when Callum Hayes claimed the U14 title at the Clare County Parkland championship in East Clare last weekend. He shot a wonderful round of 78 gross to win the championship.
