Kevin Glynn, the Lahinch Boys’ Fred Daly and Boys’ Inter-Club captain looks forward to bringing his two teams to compete in the All-Ireland finals at Castletroy Golf Club this week.
The Lahinch boys’ team will be looking to claim their first All-Ireland title having struggled to get out of the Munster area finals in the past.
“Well, the boys and the parents and Johnny Reynolds and myself, we’re all delighted. It’s time consuming but were happy to do it and the boys are happy to turn up,” said Glynn.
“I’m 27 years involved with junior golf, never have we won it. We never even got out of Munster, we got to the North Munster final but Limerick would always put a stop to us.”
Glynn puts all of Lahinch’s junior success down to the addition of their recently built golf academy and the coaching that the juniors are receiving.
“The boys were lucky to have the golf academy in Lahinch. The golf academy in Lahinch has been a big boost to us. All the boys get coaching there from October through to May. If you’re interested, you’ll get coaching,” said Glynn.
“Why this year of all years, I would say its coaching with Donal McSweeney. That’s the big difference. The club are funding coaching to a big extent.”
The All-Ireland finals of the Boys’ and Girls’ Inter-club, Boys’ Junior Foursomes and Boys’ Fred Daly will take place at Castletroy Golf Club while Lahinch will have the opportunity to bring two pennants back to the club.
“We’re happy and were looking forward to it in a big way,” said Glynn.
