Played 18 holes – starting at 13 at 11.00 a.m. with Alan Ratcliff. Pulled a hired cart. €3. Scored approximately 90 for the round and did not lose my ball. Shanked a bunker shot on 1 and shanked a chip on 12 – my last hole. Annoying. Lost my green and white umbrella on 13 and prayed to St. Anthony but it had not been handed in by evening. Ulster girls’ team going out to practice. They had the first tee booked until 11.30 a.m. Alan played better than usual and won a few holes. Rang Tom Hamill x2 in the morning and arranged for myself, Alan and his wife Briege to attend in Mount Oliver the celebration of "Passover." I took no shower and sat in my golf clothes at the ritual between Ann Kieran and Alan Ratcliff. Grape juice, bitter herbs, roast lamb and vegetables including potato. About 80 attended including a party from the NW. The ritual lasted from 7.30 p.m. until around 11.00 p.m. I enjoyed it and got on well with Ann Kieran, I thought, although I was rather too warm in my moss green Greenore jersey and black shirt.
