The top 33 players and ties made the cut for the final round on Thursday, however the Championship Committee are keeping an eye on Storm Ellen which may impact the final day’s play.


The Irish Under 14 Championship, scheduled for Thursday at Cahir Park, has been cancelled due to the orange weather warning in place for the area.
