There are many students at Chanel College that hide their light under a bushel, one such student is third year Ross Mohan. A prestigious golfer for his age Ross is amongst the very best in the Country. As an U13 Ross won the Leinster U13 series and represented Ireland in the Reid trophy in England.
As an U15, Ross produced a fantastic display against high quality opposition to secure victory in the Leinster open Championship. He went on to represent Leinster in this summer’s interprovincial series, securing 2 points out 3.. He is also a member of the Leinster U18 coaching panel. We congratulate Ross and his family and wish him continued success. (Mr. Mays PE Teacher At Chanel College)
