A message from our Captains
We, Mary, Dave and John, are truly honoured to have been afforded the opportunity to serve as your Captains in 2022. We look forward with President Andy to represent you all to the best of our ability in all aspects to bring you the ultimate Golf and Bowling experience for the year.
We wish all the outgoing officers, Anne, Tommy and Peter well in their retirement and thank them for their dedicated support and enthusiasm over the last number of years. We are also grateful for their decisions to invite us to take up this prestigious role.
2022 will hopefully see a return to a full year of competitive golf and bowling. We, as Captains, will give our full support to all the teams representing Clontarf. We thank, in advance, all the players and managers who will volunteer their time and expertise to ensure that Clontarf will be represented to the best of our ability.
This is a very special and exciting year in our Bowling Club as we host the Presidency of the Ladies’ Bowling League of Ireland. We congratulate Catherine Hazlett on her elevation to President of the L.B.L.I. and we wish her well in her tenure in office. We look forward to many great events at which our club can be showcased to the nation.
Sponsors come to the fore every year and this year is no different. We are truly grateful to all the sponsors who have come forward again this year. Your continued generosity eases the burden on all the tournament committees and is much appreciated. Thank you all for your kind support.
To all the staff, we look forward to working with you all in the coming year. We thank the office staff, the ground staff, the caterers, the house staff and especially the staff in the Pro Shop. Eamonn, Kevin and Eoin are always on hand to assist the captains and members with a warm and jovial welcome that is Clontarf.
Last year saw the teams winning 4 pennants: 2 ladies, 1 Junior and 1 mixed. There will be great excitement throughout the year as we progress through the phases of each Inter Club Competition. We are in no doubt that we have the ability in our Ladies, Men and Bowling members to go even further this year. We as Captains will leave no stone unturned to ensure that all teams have whatever support they need.
Finally, we look forward to working with Vice Captains Liam, Madge and Yvonne, President Andy, Vice President Anna Marie and all the Committees in what we believe will be a wonderful experience for us and all the members. We wish you all health and happiness for 2022 and we see you all on the hallowed turf of our fine course and bowling green.
Dave, Mary and John.
