A big stepping stone for Longford golfer

“Massive, massive,” enthused an elated Sean Flanagan, after he dramatically captured the Cathedral Eye Clinic sponsored North of Ireland Amateur Golf Championship Final at Royal Portrush on Friday last (July 15). 

20-year-old Longford native Sean claimed the silverware with a very composed 3&1 victory over Massereene’s Tiarnan McLarnon.

“It’s a big stepping stone for me,” remarked Sean, who is hoping the Home Internationals will be the next thing on his schedule.

Son of Kevin and Siobhan, and a former student at Mercy Secondary School, Ballymahon, Sean produced a nerveless putting display in his first major final.
