Portsalon Golf ClubDonal Mc LochlainThe Captain D P Logue, President Wm Mc Cleary and the member’s of Portsalon Golf Club were saddened and shocked to learn of the sudden passing of their golfing colleague and friend Donal Mc Lochlain. Donal had been a member of Porsalon golf club for a long number of years and had made Portsalon his second home for many years overlooking Ballymactocker Bay. During his golfing career Donal represented Portsalon Golf club at every level throughout Donegal and Ulster in the various competitions. The highlight of Donal’s golfing career was when in 1987 he was bestowed the title of Captain for his beloved Portsalon Golf Club. A task which he undertook showing his professional background,ability and dignity. Such was the esteem in which the members held for him with in the club; in 1986 Donal was also appointed as one of the Trustees of the course of the Portsalon golf course. Our deepest sympathy goes to his wife Rita his son and daughter and extended family members. We may forget the detail, we may forget the date but we will always remember the man. May Donal be reaping his eternal rewards on the fairways of heaven. May he rest in peace. EventsOn Saturday 15th December there is a gents open competition.
