Malahide’s Alison Taylor is still in contention for her first Irish Senior Women’s Close Championship title at Naas after she defeated Gertie McMullen (The Island) and Gail Linter (Belvoir Park) in today’s last 16 and quarter final matches.

Taylor now joins Maria O’Reilly (Headfort), Sheena McElroy (Grange) and Suzanne Corcoran in an experienced semi-final line-up as O’Reilly is a past runner up in the event while McElroy and Corcoran have both won the title on two previous occasions.

Deirdre Walsh (Milltown), who qualified second to Taylor with her total of 150, bowed out to O’Reilly in the quarter finals 3&2, while two-time Senior Women’s Amateur Champion Laura Webb struggled to get going against McElroy in the last 16.

In the second flight of matchplay, the semi-finals of the Plate will also be played tomorrow where Fiona Corbett (Castletroy) plays home favourite Paula Murray (Naas) and Marie Sudway (Old Conna) takes on Anita McCaw (RCDL).
