Ireland’s other competitors aren’t far behind and are in with a shout of victory with Stuart Grehan (Maynooth) T3 only 3 shots back, Robin Dawson (Maynooth) T5 a further two shots back on three under, Kevin Le Blanc (Maynooth) on two under and Jonathan Yates (UCD) on one under par.

In the women’s event Sinead Sexton (Stirling) is T3 on three under while Molly Dowling (Maynooth) is one shot further back on two under.  Shannon Burke (Maynooth) is 12th on twelve over and Mary Doyle (Maynooth) is 13th on thirteen over.
