Our dear departed friend, Paddy McInerney, left us all too soon, a couple of years back. Paddy was a friend to everyone and was active up to the very end. He was a keen golfer and a fantastic member and committee member for Virginia Golf Club. He was also a man who spent a lot of his time in Crover Golf Club, a short trip from his home. Virginia Golf Club Captain Martin Sherry and his Crover counterpart, John McGinn, formulated the idea of an annual match between Virginia and Crover Golf Clubs to commemorate Paddy with the inaugural event to be played in Virginia and the match to alternate between the two clubs subsequently. The teams were selected with comradery in mind and the result very much secondary but the home side shaded the result in the end.
