Casey/McCarthy Memorial Golf Tournament
By Rick Winterson

     Steve Casey and Kevin McCarthy were well known to the patrons on The Quiet Man Pub, which sits next to the Broadway Red Line “T” Station.

     Kevin was the news and sports guy there.  He always had a joke or a quip whenever you came in, no matter who you were.  People would stop by if they saw his pickup parked outside.

     Steve was the grille cook at The Quiet Man.  After 18 years behind the grille, he developed most of its recipes, including the steak-tips-to-die-for.  And his recipes are still used.  He was a musician and a good dancer as well.

     Both Kevin and Steve died unexpectedly.  In an ideal world, they would have been with us much longer.  A few very well known people are remembered for what they do.  The rest of us will be remembered for whether we were decent, caring guys and gals.  So it is with Steve and Kevin.  Accordingly, Tim Buckley and Paul Lynch at The Quiet Man named their golf tournament after the two of them.

     The purpose of the tournament is to raise money for funding youth programs.  In 2006, the funds will be split between scholarships for deserving students and worthwhile youth organizations.  Prior scholarship recipients have included Caitlin Linehan (to Plymouth State) and Brendan England (to Framingham State).  Tim and Paul are working on the distribution right now.

     This year, the George Wright Golf Course was selected.  It is fairly hilly and long – somewhat more of a challenge, in other words.  The tournament will be “Best Ball”; registration is promptly at 7:30 a.m., Monday, August 14.  A party follows immediately after the tournament, at Tom Flaherty’s Cornerstone Pub.  The Quiet Man will simply carry their food across the street into Tom’s function room.

     You often hear, “Sign up now.  Tickets are going rapidly.”  Well, in this case, it’s true.  The target is 36 paid foursomes – 30 or so have already signed up as of this writing.  Call Tim Buckley or Paul Lynch at The Quiet Man for your own slot – (617)269-9878.  Anyone wishing to sponsor a hole ($100) or donate a prize/raffle should call Tim or Paul also.

     By the way, even though you may have heard different, The Quiet Man Pub remains open for an indefinite time.  Paul and Tim are still serving their renowned lobster dinners through the Labor Day weekend, and their steak tips are still to die for.
