Great memories on Facebook this  morning  of playing golf with Paul Mcgrath in Arklow. I Ihadn't played in Arklow for years.

When asked to play i didn;t know whether it would happen or not.

When I walked into the clubhouse lo and behold he was sitting there waiting to pllay.

My opening words were Inormally I  charge appearance money but today i'll write if off he broke his heart laughing really broke the ice.

We shared a buggy he loves the game played 18 holes had photograph  taken with a prized possesion.

I am going back to play in Arklow 'next week after a long break.

Arklow was my  first club will always be a special place in my heart made fantastic friends there and represented the club on many

occasions over the years.
