Abbot's Cup, Reunions and Union AGM


The Abbot's Cup Golf, the Reunions of the Classes of 1970 and 2000 were scheduled to take place on the weekend of 5th/6th September. Looking ahead back in July, there seemed reasonable grounds for optimism that these events might be able to take place, but the postponement of Phase 4 of the re-opening of the country cast some doubt over that. The reunion of the Class of 1970 has in fact been postponed sine die. These doubts were reinforced by the increasing number of cases of Covid-19 and the renewed lockdown in Counties Kildare, Laois and Offaly announced on 7th August.
