Corbally Cup – GOTY
Sponsored by: E. Purcell
The second cup of the year is usually the Corbally Cup. It was first presented in 1929. Cyril Corbally, formerly of Rathbeale Hall, and who later having married the widowed Mrs. Cobbe, lived in Newbridge House until his death in 1946, was President of Dnabate Golf Club from 1929 to 1940 inclusive. A noted Croquet player, he pre-dated Sam Snead by some decades, putting “croquet” style. As President during that period he oversaw the huge move from the little links on the commonage at Corballis to our present site. This Cup was first played for in 1929 and was contested for and won by many famous members of Donabate Golf Club, as can be seen from the medals round the base. It is a particularly fine Silver cup and now that it has been re-introduced to our Competitions list. Paul Flood won the Cup in 2018 with an excellent 38 points.
