PRESIDENT ELECT, Billy Harley captured his second title of the year at Greencastle Golf Club as he claimed top prize in the Paddy Hynes Cup last Sunday with two shots to spare over the field.

Left-hander, Harley has often been quoted as claiming that Greencastle favours ‘lefties’ and he proved the point again having already secured the Smithwicks Cup back in May.

Liam Edwards took second prize in the Paddy Hynes Cup with 41 points on a break-of-tie from George Hegarty.
