On Friday the 16th Sept 2011 in The Grange Golf Club in Rathfarnham, the Past Pupils’ of Loreto Beaufort celebrated their 3rd Annual Past Pupils’ Dinner & Golf Outing and what a great day and night it proved to be.
On the day itself, there was an air of excitement, chatter and laughter all around the Grange Golf Club as over fifty five “Beaufort Golfers” began to arrive at Grange Car Park in their droves. Registration was smoothly handled by the ever competent Stephanie Graham and Joan Merrigan.
Despite the dreadful weather the Grange golf course was in excellent condition. Although the golfers got a four hour soaking, the competition was as usual “very keen” with all players completely focused on winning the “Loreto Beaufort Byrne Past Pupils’ Perpetual Trophy”.
This year’s winner was Eadaoin Furey (class of 79) who despite the bad weather clearly played good golf and just beat Sarah Daly (class of 88) on the back nine. In third place was Elaine Fagan who on the day played in the competition along with three generations of her family all Beaufort girls (Carmel, Elaine, Eibhin, Paula and Doireann).
