Named after Professor Purcell, one of Ireland’s outstanding golf administrators, from the 1920s to 1960s, it was won first by Masserene, in 1970. Five foursome pairings represent each club, comprised of minimum individual handicaps of 11 and minimum combined of 25. Galway, Muskerry, St Annes and Warrenpoint have all won this shield more than once.
