Ashbourne's Peter Kane followed in his late father Raymond’s footsteps by capturing the gold medal following the Hilary Golf Society's season-ending event at Royal Dublin.

The prize is awarded to the player achieving the best aggregate total from three outings and two-handicapper Peter claimed the prize with Portmarnock's John Greene capturing the gross award. 

Peter was eight under for his best three nett scores and John was four under gross!

The outing was won by Royal Dublin's Barry Murphy, who shot a 66 off five for a six-stroke win over clubmate Conor Gallagher, who is off four. 

Castle's Jim Mulready captured the gross with a fine 72.

Murphy joined Brendan O’Malley (Royal Dublin), Chris O’Connor (Corrstown) and Finn Sullivan (Forrest Little) in winning the team prize with a 60.
