In light of the Irish Government’s measures announced on Wednesday, the GUI has confirmed that the All-Ireland Semi-Finals and Finals of the AIG Senior Cup and AIG Jimmy Bruen Shield will not take place at Donegal Golf Club this weekend.  

“Our plans for all All-Ireland competitions are under review as of now, and further updates will be given in the coming days,” said the statement.

The national club championship campaign had been due to conclude with four competitions being held across two sets of dates in Donegal Golf Club this month, starting this weekend.

Amongst the teams set to compete from Friday’s official practice day were defending champions Galway Golf Club who were due to face Belvoir Park for a place in another Senior Cup final.

“The right decision,” wrote Galway’s Joe Lyons.

“Disappointed not to have the opportunity to defend our title this weekend but some things are more important. Here’s hoping the finals will be able to proceed at a future date.”

Both the Junior Cup and Pierce Purcell Shield were to be decided later this month back at Donegal GC on October 29 and 30. We will be sure to publish any updates here at Irish Golfer Magazine in the coming days.

    Hard luck on the teams. They would have been looking forward to this so much. Difficult decision but understandable. It is not unprecedented for the Irish Finals to be delayed and played in the following year. It happened in 1975/1976 when the matches scheduled to be played at Portrush were postponed for six months because of the so-called ‘Troubles’.
