Dundrum House Golf Day Fundraiser raises in excess of €9,000 in aid of Tipperary Senior Hurlers Players Fund, Dublin Senior Football Players Fund and Tallaght Community Arts
Dundrum House Hotel Golf and Leisure Resort raised over €9,000 as part of a fundraising golf event, which included a raffle on Friday last 7th October with proceeds going to the Tipperary Senior Hurlers Players Fund, the Dublin Players Training Fund and Tallaght Community Arts (TCA).
After a highly competitive event with 27 participating teams, the eventual winners were a team led by Michael Ryan with Libby Ryan, Michael Hayes and Isobel Hayes. The team with Richard Horgan, Alan Horgan, Aoghaon Hourigan, and Niall Cadden took second place, and the team that came third comprised of Ronan Power, Darren Gleeson, Noel Quirke and Michael Butler.
The Sam Maguire and Liam McCarthy Cups made a rare appearance at the event and the golfing enthusiasts were able to purchase tickets in a raffle to win prizes including signed Dublin and Tipperary jerseys, 3 months’ membership at Dundrum House Leisure Club, a voucher for lunch at the Venue Clubhouse and a 4 Ball at Dundrum House Golf Club.
Golfers on the day included All-Ireland Hurling Tipperary Champions Darren Gleeson, Seamus Callinan, John ‘Bubbles’ O'Dwyer, Brendan Maher and Noel McGrath, All-Ireland Football Dublin Champion Bernard Brogan and entertainment star Keith Duffy.
Dundrum House Golf Course designed by Ryder Cup great, Philip Walton, is set on a 200-acre estate of woodland and parkland and against the backdrop of the Golden Vale of Tipperary.
Dundrum House Golf Resort General Manager Noel Mulhaire said of the event;
“The day was a huge success and we were overwhelmed by the generosity of people when it came to getting teams together, sponsorship of teeboxes and the raffle. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves, but most importantly, it helped to raise a lot of money and awareness for three great funds.”
