Yes Naas,Co.Kildare its the British and Irish GAYP TY thats in progress.One of my favourite week-end tournament away and im so sorry to have to miss this year because of other factors. Shane is the current holder and Myles also didnt make it either.Colin Young [Sco] was runner up last year and will be favorite this time but John McElhone [NI] will give him a run for his money.Thanks to Sune [Den]for the update.!!
