Flogas Irish Mixed Foursomes a festival of fun


Nothing defines the new status quo of Irish golf better than the Flogas Irish Mixed Foursomes.

It’s the only national event where men and women play together on the same team and this year’s edition promises to be another thrilling affair under the Golf Ireland umbrella at Athlone Golf Club.

Nearly 300 clubs have entered the competition in 2022, seeking to succeed Doneraile as All-Ireland champions.

Quarter-final action begins today with Munster East winners Thurles taking on Ulster North champions Fintona in the first game of the day.

Thurles beat Skibbereen 3.5-1.5 in the Munster East final while Fintona picked up a 3-2 win over Cushendall in Ulster North.

The winners will face Balbriggan, who won 4-1 over Laytown and Bettystown at Leinster North, or Portumna, who beat Tubbercurry 3.5-1.5 to claim the Connacht title.

In the other half of the draw, Munster champions West Glengarriff will look to replicate the form they showed against Woodstock when they face Ulster champions South Warrenpoint.

The winners of this clash will line up against Milltown, 3-5-1.5 winners of Powerscourt at Leinster South, or Castlecomer, who beat Gowran Park 3.5-1.5 to exit Leinster Central.

The Al Ireland semi-finals are set for tomorrow morning with the Flogas Irish Mixed Foursomes final set for Saturday morning at 9am.
