Malahide Golf Club member, Marie Falvey set a special record in this, her club’s 125th anniversary year. She has won the All-Ireland Mother and Daughter Foursomes competition for the third time, all with different partners.

On June 30th last at Donabate Golf Club, Marie won her third All Ireland Mother and Daughter Foursomes competition, with her daughter, Deirdre Sheehan, a member of Kanturk Golf Club.

In 1981, Marie won the inaugural “Freddie Moran” Cup with her mother, Marie. Then in 2015, she won her second All Ireland Mother and Daughter Foursomes with her daughter Ciara Smith from Malahide Golf Club.

Fred Moran, Captain of Malahide Golf Club in 2012 and son of Freddie Moran presented the “Freddie Moran” Perpetual Cup to Marie and Deirdre at a well-attended ceremony at Donabate Golf Club. This is a marvellous achievement by Marie, to have won this prestigious event as both mother and daughter.
