Co Sligo’s Jessica Reynolds wins Connacht Girls Championship

Co Sligo Golf Club teenager Jessica Reynolds has won the 2022 Connacht Junior Girls Championship at Castle Dargan Golf Club in Sligo.

The 13-year-old from Rosses Point finished three shots clear of the rest of the field after the competition’s two rounds of strokeplay.

Jessica spoke to Ocean FM Sport’s Austin O’Callaghan after her win.


Reynolds has been one of Co Sligo’s exciting young golfing prospects in recent seasons.

In 2021, she helped Co Sligo win the All-Ireland junior girls team championship title in Clontarf for the first time.

The Sligo Grammar School student is also a noted rugby player with Sligo Rugby Club.

Reynolds’ clubmate Claudette Murphy also featured prominently, finishing fifth overall.
