For the first time ever there is an All-Ireland title coming back to Kilkenny as Ladies Fourball makes history
Gowran Park ladies made history at the weekend as they were the first Kilkenny team to win an All-Ireland title after beating Gort in the Revive Active ladies fourball in Knightsbrook.
Aisling Costello was the hero for Gowran as she rolled in the winning putt to seal the most dramatic of wins, on the 18th green to win the hole 1up.
Speaking to the media afterward, Gowran Park Assistant Manager Keelin Walsh said “It’s been a great year for Gowran Park, we’re a small club, it’s 22 years old and it’s a fabulous course and we’re just thrilled with the support that we have had here,”
“All of our supporters for the last couple of months have been coming to all of our games and they really just pushed us on.
“We really tried our hardest out there today and we are absolutely thrilled with the win. It means so much for the club. This is actually our first All-Ireland as a club. It was the first time to win the Leinster Central final as well. It’s a first for the club all around.
“It was so tight all day, the ladies from Gort just played so well. They had us to the pin of our collar the whole way around. It was ebbing and flowing, it was up and down and that’s the way it should be for an All-Ireland final, this is the pinnacle. “But coming down 17 I didn’t know what was going to happen but I know our girls were going to do the best they could. And the last putt on the last hole it was ours.”
