St. Helen's Bay, Kilrane Co. Wexford hosted the 2nd annual running of the Carne Trophy competition on Saturday October 10th.  Following the passing of Molly O'Donnell, a native of Carne, in 2008, Molly's granddaughter Susan and her husband, Russell, presented a trophy in her memory.  An annual golf weekend has taken place in October for many years in which many of Molly's extended family and friends take part and it was felt that this was an appropriate way of keeping Molly's memory alive.  The inaugural winning team in October 2008 included one of Molly's sons-in-law and grandsons-in-law.

This years winners with a fantastic score of 81 points were Tommy and Shay O'Donnell, (both sons of Molly) and Pat Shortall.
