Paul McBride just pipped in British Amateur Open at the R&A

Wow, what an pity, won the quarter final this morning 2 and 1, down by two with two to play in the semi-final, leveled at 18, level at 19, lost by one shot on the 20th. Obviously another serious Irish golfing prospect and the pride of Malahide. Paul played football and hurling (and often seem sporting his Ui Fhaile shirt) with Syls and Scoil Iosa on the same team as Michael Shiels, Jack Hazely, Eoghan Hammill, Collie Byrne et al, managed by his dad Dave and Fergus Byrne over the years. Dave is coaching our Inter hurlers at the moment also. Congratulations Paul and Dave and Trish, wonderful achievement and obviously plenty more to come. A win at the Open would have qualified Paul for the Masters at Agusta which I hear he parr'ed recently.
