Ciaran Cunneen’s Golfathon

Dear Member

 
The final tally is €1,200 which is beyond my widest dreams and expectations. If I was allowed to hug everyone at the club, I would. 
 
Thank you so much to everyone involved. One of the main reasons for re-joining the club this year was the great “community” spirit that exists within the club, but I never expected this. 
 
I want to thank the President, the Captain and Lady Captain, the committee, Joanne and the office staff, the volunteers and my playing partners. The reception I received on the 110th hole from those who waited or travelled over to the club to see me in, will live long in the memory and was and still is very much appreciated. 

Kind Regards,

Ciaran
