Plenty of farmiliar local faces, too many to name.

I can see me at 32:14 with camera in hand :photo: , Doc Rafferty RIP at 43:56 and for Joanne I can see your dear Mum and Dad at 34:52.

Thanks for posting Garbhan, great memories.

Looking at this again tonight and wonderin' if Richiemac or any of the other golf enthusiasts could tell me who the guy in orange standing between Brian snr. and jnr. is? It's around 42:38 into the clip.......don't recognise the face at all.

GGG, fairly sure (famous last words) the guy in orange is Stephen Rafferty brother of Ronan.

Great coverage off 1st Tee on 3/4/67 - warreypoint
Apart from the stylish golfer (except for the swing) at 5:50 it has brought back many memories of good times with friends no longer with us.
I only hope they are all enjoying the lush fairways of heaven and being caught on camera by your dad.

The late Brian Boyle (RIP) 23:40 made a good recovery after feeling the 1st Tee pressure of playing with Des Smith,

Also fine collection of caddies showing their skills. Peadar-Gus-Rice (RIP) looking after the infamous Brian Barnes, as well as his playing partners at 47:20,
and Pat Finnison (RIP) 1:34:20 keeping an eye on Wayne Riley who made a name for himself in Warrenpoint. Peter Rooney and Miceal Rice showing you don't need woods to play the 1st.
