On the face of it, Michael Hoey’s decision to swap his yardage book for a rule book and take up a role as a DP World Tour referee might surprise a few people. By his own meticulously high standards, the Northern Irishman even impressed himself at times with his play...

A dominant start from Ireland’s Ladies team ensured they had too much for Austria in their semi-final tie as they marched into Saturday’s Flight B final at the European Amateur Team Championships in Conwy Bay. 

Aine Donegan and Anna Foster continued their 100% record in the foursomes as they ran out comprehensive 3&2 winners over Chantel Duringer and Laura Fangmeyer. 

That set the tone for a superb afternoon for the girls in green as Lauren Walsh attoned for her singles defeat against the Swiss with a 3&2 win over Anna Neumayer in the first singles match of the day. 

Irish Close runner-up Sara Byrne roared to a thumping 5&4 win over Isabella Holpfer in the third match of the day to leave the result beyond doubt as Kate Lanigan and Beth Coulter were called in meaning Ireland cruised to a 4-1 win. 

They will play France in tomorrow’s final. 

Meanwhile in the Men’s championship, Ireland overcame their disappointment yesterday to book their place in the 5th/6th place playoff with Italy after a 3-2 win over Germany in Flight A. 

The pick of the wins was a 6&4 win for Galway’s Liam Nolan over Germany’s Yannick Malik at Royal St. George’s. 

In the Boys competition in Germany, Ireland will face Finland in the final of Flight B after a comprehensive 4-1 win over Slovenia in the semi-final. 

Sean Keeling, Jack Murphy and Darcy Hogg/Gavin O’Neill all secured full points for the boys in green. 

Meanwhile in Iceland the Irish girls were red hot as they saw off Switzerland 4-1 in the final of Flight B where they will play the Netherlands in the decider. 

Rebekah Gardner, Irish Girls champion Katie Poots and Roisin Scanlon all recorded heavy wins against the Swiss while Caitlin Shippam and Olivia Costello won their foursomes match 2UP.
