Barry originally from Dungannon turned pro in 1985 won the order of merit in 1992 a former professional at Killymoon and the Grange Golf club. He set up his golf Academy back in 2001 which has been hugely successful but now he feels it's time for something extra.

"It's a great venture" said Rodney Mc Aree I really should get the lads over for some shooting practice for next heard premiership joked the Swifts Manager.

I have played it several times myself and it's just great fun added Logie. It's a great leveller a bit like golf and is a welcomed addition to the area I wish Barry every success.
