Telephone conversation in South Dublin yesterday morning:

Caitrona Plunkett: Hi Bernie, it's my birthday today, I'm wondering what to do?

Bernie O'Brien: Hey Caitriona I'm 21 today too! Why don't we go up to the Club and win the Ladies Fourball Championship?

Caitriona Plunkett: That's a great idea, let's do it!

And so the scene was set. Pity poor Ita and Doreen, as if the challenge wasn't stern enough already little did they know that they had to battle with two, yes two, birthday girls to regain their title!

What a match it was! All four ladies have been in fine form, Doreen was crowned Singles champion just two weeks ago. And this match definitely matched up to the billing.

Every shot counted, every putt was measured, analysed and all the lines debated. The birthday girls had the better of the front nine and while they turned three up they knew they were still in a match with all to play for.

Ita and Doreen battled away on the inward nine but wins were hard earned all day and it was difficult to convert chances into points on the board.

In the end Caitriona and Bernie ground it out until clinching the title on the final par three. A brilliant win and a unique way to celebrate two birthdays! One assumes only the Redmond brothers have achieved a similar feat!

Congratulations Caitriona Plunkett and Bernie "I'm only a beginner" O'Brien, Ladies Fourball Champions 2019, well done to you both..............and belated happy birthdays!

Commiserations Ita and Doreen, no doubt you will be back next year looking to get that title back.
