SKIBB met Clonmel in the South regional final at Limerick Golf Club on Monday September in the ILGU Miele All-Ireland Fourball Championship 2012.

 

The four Skibbereen matches teed off enduring heavy rain but play was soon suspended by officials as the course became waterlogged.

After an hour, play was resumed under brighter skies.

By the ninth hole, the first match Hilda and Catriona were three-up, Maura and Bernie were two-down, Mary and Una were all square and Mary and Anne were three-up.
