Clare Duo Selected On Golf Ireland Women’s High Performance Squad

Two Clare women have been selected on the 2023 Golf Ireland Women’s High Performance Squad.

Lahinch Golf Club duo Aine Donegan and Aideen Walsh are part of the 9 strong panel for the international squads.

2021 saw Walsh being part of the field for the KPMG Irish Women’s Open at Dromoland, with the Ennis native missing the weekend cut by just one stroke.


Those selected will also be hoping to World Team Championships in Dubai in 2023.

Speaking about the selections, Neil Manchip Golf Ireland High Performance Director said

“We had a strong 2022 with several team and individual successes. The highlights of which featured our women’s team, led by Naoimh Quigg, winning the Home Internationals at Ballyliffin and Matt McClean topping off a stellar season with a victory against teammate Hugh Foley in the U.S. Mid-Amateur. We hope to build on this success with today’s squad announcements and bring more silverware back to Ireland.

2023 promises to be another compelling year of international team golf. Along with the annual European Team Championships and Home Internationals, squad players will be giving their all to make the World Team Championships in Dubai this time next year.”

Our international tournament programme will also provide opportunity for players to gain selection for the Vagliano Trophy at Royal Dornoch in June and the Walker Cup at St. Andrews in September.”
