Irish eyes are smiling

When indomitable Irishman Jim Devereux recently received a trophy at Newton Green Golf Club, it was the seventh time in 14 years he had collected the same award.

Seniors at the club compete over 30 weeks of the summer for the Brian Eady Senior Stableford glass bowl.

After five years when his name has been missing from the trophy, Devereux is back as the winner of a competition which began in 1999.

His winning run began in 2001, when he won for the first of six times in eight years.

The only man to put a spoke in his earlier running sequence was donor of the 
trophy, Brian Eady, who won in Devereux’s two barren years.
