McKevitt congratulates local rising golf star

SDLP South Down MLA Karen McKevitt has offered her congratulations to Ireland’s youngest golf star Sean Ryan of Burren, County Down who represented Ireland in the US Kids Golf World Championship.

Speaking to Newry Times, McKevitt described Sean as ‘a wee wonder’.

“During the course of the championship in Southern Pines he performed brilliantly and proved an outstanding ambassador for Ireland.

“Sean is the youngest Irish player to ever qualify for U.S. Kids which is a remarkable achievement especially as he has never had a lesson.

“I do believe he is a Tiger Woods or Rory McIlroy in the making. Well done Sean.”
