SUBSCRIBE WEDNESDAY 18.9.19 WWW.IRISHGOLFER.IE .ie O WELCOME TO FINALS WEEK AT WESTPORT Provincial winners pining after club pennants will this week get their chance when the AIG Cups and Shields Finals get underway at wonderful Westport. ne Sunday every summer, as the song goes, the pilgrims climb the reek. Westport Golf Club, a stunning set beneath Croagh Pat- rick's brooding peak, is a shrine for devotees of a different kind this week. Golfers from all four prov- inces are travelling to Co Mayo in search of glory on the greens. Five club championships are down for decision at the AIG Cups and Shields Finals, which begin on Friday (20 September). Limerick, chasing a rare Senior Cup-Barton Shield double, get proceedings underway in the semi-finals of the Barton Shield against Warrenpoint. By Friday afternoon, they will either be halfway towards that double or regrouping ahead of their Senior Cup semi-final on Saturday against Galway, which is a repeat of the 2017 final won by the Connacht side. While Limerick are among the headline acts, every challenger is chasing a dream.
