Dwayne Flynn led his team to another Mulranny Park Hotel sponsored Winter League crown when they had one point to spare over Liam Walshe’s side at Mulranny on Sunday. The hard luck story of the final concerned the disqualification of the team of Patsy Noone, Alexis Loftus, Colam O’Neill, and Padraic Walshe who recorded the same score as the winners but signed for an incorrect score at the 8th hole. This deprived them of second place as O’Malley’s and Gallagher’s card would be superior, on a count back.
