Killymoon’s young
rising star

Killymoon Golf Club’s up and coming young star Brendan ‘Rory McIlroy’ Mulgrew - as he likes to call himself - participated in the five to six year old age category, at the Wee Wonders Golf Championship played at Blackwood Golf Centre.

And Brendan certainly lent support to the theory that he will one day make a name for himself on fairways near and far. That’s because he managed to finish second.

At just five years old he is a very talented young golfer and his tutor Michael Gallagher is just one of many who feels he has a bright future.
