Golf may be a team competition but when it comes to international team events the captain plays a vital role.

The ILGU will be looking to continue there winning form over the next twelve months with the announcement that Danielle McVeigh (Royal County Down Ladies) will again Captain the Ladies Irish Team while Helen Jones (Royal Portrush) takes over the reins from Gemma Butler (Birr) and will Captain the Irish Girls’ Team.

McVeigh, who has had a successful career as an amateur and professional is excited for what is in store for her second year as Captain;

‘It is a pleasure to work with such a fantastic group of people, both the players and the support staff.''

''Together we overcame many challenges last year which I am sure 2018 will also present. Winning the 2017 Home Internationals showed how a great team comes together and performs. There is such a depth of talent in Ireland right now and it will be really exciting to be Captain again in 2018.’

Meanwhile, Valerie Hassett (Ennis), past ILGU President, will take over from Pauline Walsh (Headfort) at Senior’s level as she relishes the thought of an exciting new position and build on the achievements of the team over the last two years.
