It was a good day in Mullingar for Laytown and Bettystown’s Daniel Mulligan as he went on a birdie blitz on the back nine, and holds a six shot lead heading to the final round.


Mullingan grabbed six birdies in his round with three coming in his last five holes to take a commanding six-shot lead into the final round of the Irish Under 14 Boys Amateur Open Championship at Mullingar, on four under par.


Having endured a difficult start to his day, bogeying the first, Mulligan went on to birdie 6, 9 and 11 before another bogey on 13. He bounced back immediately though with birdie on 14 before closing with two more on 16 and 18.

Greenore’s Matthew Giles is in second place on two-over after a 74 with Balmoral’s Fionn Dobbin in third after his first round 75.

Dobbin leads the race for the Under 13 medal by two shots from Moyola Park’s Corey Scullion, who carded a 77.
