|Adare team lost on the course|
|The 9th at East Clare. The hole doglegs right around the water and |
the tree... now gone.
- Adare, Co. Limerick - trees down around the estate, most notably on holes 13 and 17 where they have fallen near greens.
- Ardglass, Co. Down - click the link to read Paul Kelly's blog about the sea's damage to the course.
- Borris, Co. Carlow – over 40 trees down.
- Bunclody, Co. Wexford – 20-25 trees down around the estate.
The charming driveway in has several trees down and the roof of the practice
range has been torn off.

- Dundrum House, Co. Tipperary - over 350 trees down. Much work over the weekend by staff and volunteers has opened up most of the course, but one of the bridges over the River Multeen has been badly damaged.
- East Clare, Co. Clare – 18 trees down, the most significant of which is the signature tree on the dogleg of the Index 1 9th hole.
- Fermoy, Co. Cork – 270 trees down.
- Kilkenny, Co. Kilkenny – 353 trees down. The estimated damage is €200,000.
- Killarney, Co. Kerry – 196 trees down across the two courses. It took six days before just one of the courses (O'Mahony's Point) could be re-opened.
- Limerick, Co. Limerick – 300 trees down. The character they gave the course won’t be recreated for years. Here's an aerial video of what it looked like in the days after the storm.

- Mulranny, Co. Mayo – sea and rock now populate fairways and a lot of work will be required to return it to its past glories. This uses to be an 18 hole course, but the sea clawed back 9 of them some time ago. Here's an excellent article about the course and devastation by Brian Keogh.
- Narin & Portnoo, Co. Donegal - a chunk of the spectacular 15th fairway which runs above the beach has been eaten away - quite literally as if something has taken a bite.
- Rosses Point, Co. Sligo – has had a few heavy hits, with some big chunks of dunes swept away. The course remains OK, but it’s not difficult to see what’s coming down the line!
- Waterford Castle, Co. Waterford – over 60 trees down across this idyllic island course.
