This Sporting Life: The Story of Minority Sport in North Dublin

This Sporting Life is an upbeat and lively series of short documentaries which capture the excitement and dedication of minority sports people and encourages others to join in. Each programme serves as an introduction to a different minority sport practiced in Northside Dublin.

18. Pitch & Putt

Portmarnock golf links is famous as one of the best golf courses in Ireland but Portmarnock is also home to another of the country’s top courses at it’s pitch and putt course, with greens that would be the envy of any club.

We went along to Portmarnock Pitch and Putt Club on a wet Sunday morning just before Christmas to find out a bit about the sport and the club. We spoke  to chairman David Crum and met some of the members including Mary Lynch, Pearce Cromwell, Tom Duffy and Garry O’Connor.
