Dun Laoghiare cheers on local golfers
The NCBI Specsavers HolmPatrick Cup is coming to Old Conna Golf Club, County Wicklow on Thursday, 2 August, where eager golfers will tee off to compete for the chance to play at St Andrew’s Scotland, and win the prestigious trophy.
Ireland’s leading opticians and audiologists – Specsavers - has continued its charity partnership with the National Council for the Blind of Ireland as the title sponsor of the HolmPatrick Cup.
The national all-island competition was founded in 1932 and is the longest running and largest charity golf tournament in Ireland. The money raised goes directly to fund the NCBI’s life-enhancing services, which help over 8,000 people with sight loss, as well their families.
Specsavers Dún Laoghaire is encouraging locals to get behind the worthwhile cause and will be supporting the event. For only €7.50 per person or €15 per team, players can compete at Old Conna Golf Club on Thursday, 2 August from 12pm.
