“All, As I move in to Citywest, in preparation for this years Irish Open, I would like to thank everybody for their support this year and the previous 22 years we have been running this event. It is amazing to see the transition over the years and what we have become. I can confirm that we have absolutely smashed last years entry numbers which is exciting but brings its own challenges. The most important thing for me over this weekend is that we all give and receive R E S P E C T : Let every Person be respected as an individual and no Person idolized over another. THE VERY BEST TEAM THEIR IS. REMEMBER EVERYBODY GIVES OF THEIR TIME AND ENERGY FOR THIS EVENT FOR A CHILDREN S CHARITY. NOBODY GETS PAID. I AM SO VERY, VERY PROUD OF MY TEAM. The roller coaster begins for me and my AMAZING team.”
The Irish Open is a charity event run by a volunteer committee, elected annually, to host, administer and run the event. All proceeds from the event are donated to the ISPCC (Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) a very just and worthy charity. In the last two years alone the event has raised over €35,000 for the Children’s Charity.
