Ignatian Challenge Cup 2022 - Results and Photos

The Crescent College Past Pupils Union annual Ignatian Challenge Cup, held in Limerick Golf Club, had a fantastic turnout this year of 67 players (men and ladies).  We were thrilled to see so many old and new faces at the event and honoured to have many of our sponsors play on the day and particularly delighted that Limerick Golf Club’s Lady Captain Liz Griffin and its Chairperson of the Board of Management Vincent Jennings were able to play. Through the generosity of our sponsors, we raised a total of €3300. 
The weather was kind and the course in Limerick Golf Club was in fantastic condition, with credit given to the ground staff led by Course Manager Kieran Donoghue. 
The winner of the cup was Patrick Cumiskey (46 points) who has a fantastic score with an excellent round of golf. Congratulations Patrick and we look forward to your defence of your title at next year’s challenge.  The ladies’ event was won by Sheila O’Malley with an outstanding score of 42 points. Our first lady winner of the Ignatian Challenge Cup cannot be too far away.

We hope to see many of you back at the event in 2023 and new players are always welcome.

Special Mass to commemorate Monsignor Tom Stack, Sun 16 October 2022

One of the many sad losses during the COVID pandemic was a true Crescent stalwart Monsignor Tom Stack who died in December 2020.  Due to the restrictions in place it was not possible to hold a funeral or commemorative event for large numbers.

There are many of his friends who missed that opportunity and they have now arranged a commemorative mass and meet-up on the parish hall afterwards.

The Mass will be celebrated at 11.30 a.m. on Sunday, 16 October in the Church of St. Columbanus, St. Gall and Assumption of Our Lady, Milltown, Milltown Rd., Dublin 6.
There will be refreshments in the Parish Hall afterwards, and lunch, if desired, in the Radisson Hotel, Stillorgan.

Tom's friends in the Parish would like to welcome any of his old Limerick friends to come and remember Tom together. Paul Brady (086 2907820) organiser, is the person to be contacted in advance by anyone who is free to attend.
