Paul Collison: A long standing member of Nenagh Golf Club has moved. Patrick Collison, or Paudie/Paul as he was known to many, has left his beloved Cushmona and moved near to Ballinasloe to be with family. Paul was a very active member of Nenagh Golf Club as a player, team selector and committee member. Paul always gave it his best. Paul an avid student was always available for advice and encouragement, especially to new members, ladies, gents and even long-standing members who were having some golf problems. Paul always helped when asked. Hopefully Paul will enjoy the next chapter of his life in Ballinasloe surrounded by his family.
