Remember the Wizard of Oz? Dorothy and chums took a trip to the Emerald City but it was all a dream.
Well now the Emerald Classic, planned for Galway later this month, has been revealed to be a fantasy as well.
The tournament has been cancelled. A great shame, this, considering the high quality field that had been assembled.
Spiralling costs and poor organisation appear to be the reasons it's been called off.
Meanwhile, I understand the Kilkenny Masters, staged last March, is by no means certain to be held again.
