Conall McCrory Memorial Tournament
On Thursday 20th June 2019 over 40 aspiring golfers from the CBS gathered at Omagh golf club to contest for the replica Claret Jug donated by Conall’s parents in memory of their son who himself was a fantastic golfer both for his club and for his school. The weather stayed fine and the course itself was in immaculate condition. In the end the winner was Tom Quinn who defended the title of ‘Champion golfer’, having won last year as well. His score of 45 points included a one under par back nine. Runner up was Eamonn McAleer and Gross winner was Conor Byrne. The 6-hole event was won by Tiernan Kelly with Ronan Kelly winning the 9-hole competition. At the prize-giving Ciaran and Mary, seen here with winner Tom Quinn and CBS captain Conor Byrne, thanked the club for facilitating the event again and they expressed their delight at the large turnout of pupils.

Omagh CBS retained the coveted Passmore Shield with a narrow 7 games to 5 victory over Omagh Academy at Omagh golf course on Thursday 29th September. This is the 3rd year of the competition which had been started up again to help promote junior golf in the area in honour of the late Peter Passmore.
The match was played in a great sporting manner and the standard of golf was excellent. In the morning foursomes the CBS gained a narrow 2.5 to 1.5 lead but all the matches were very tight indeed. Conor Byrne and Jordan Hyland did well to hold off Scott Young and Scott Ballantine while the Academy’s Harry Evason and Charlie McKinney held on to score a point for their team. Luke Hamill and Joel Smyth gained another half point for the Academy as they played out a thrilling half match with Jack Darcy and Sean Monan. In the final match Academy pairing of Katy Ballantine and Emma Job pushed Jacob Corry and Sean McGowan all the way before narrowly losing out.
In the afternoon singles again the play was of the highest quality with Eamonn McAleer squeezing out a half point for the CBS in the first game out. All 8 singles matches hung in the balance right up until the end with Charlie Donnelly’s fight back from 2 down with 2 to play, securing the match for the CBS with a half point.
