For years the late Joe Harrison was the chief organiser, along with  others, of the weekly 12 hole Friday evening  Bunnies & Tigers golf competition at Royal Curragh.

Always an evening with lots of fun and craic last week saw a huge crowd play in the first Joe Harrison Memorial event at the club where the winner was Jack Dempsey.

The Harrison family, Teresa;  daughters Deirdre and Pauline, along with many of the extended family  were present at the presentation on a day (and night) Joe would have been proud of.
