The Friends of the Royal Hospital Donnybrook will host its annual Golf Classic on July 3 to raise much-needed funds for the hospital.

Now in its 27th year, the Golf Classic will be held at Elm Park Golf and Sports Club on Nutley Lane, with all levels of golfing ability welcome to take part to raise money.

The funds raised from the classic will go directly to supporting the hospital’s vital work, enabling it to purchase state-of-the-art rehab equipment.

Speaking ahead of the event, Oisín Quinn, chairman of the Friends of the Royal Hospital Donnybrook said: “The Golf Classic is one of the most popular fundraising events in our calendar, and we are delighted that this year’s event is proving so popular.

“Our supporters always have a brilliant day golfing, no matter whether they are experienced at the game, or just having a go for the fun of it.

“Fundraising events such as this are key in allowing the Friends to continue to support the hospital’s incredible work.

“The money raised will go towards funding leading state-of-the-art rehab equipment which can significantly improve patient care at the hospital.

“We are very much looking forward to welcoming all of our golfers to the event on the day,” he said.

Brendan Lynch, board member at the Friends of the Royal Hospital Donnybrook, said: “This event is in its 27th year and I have had the pleasure of organising for the past two years.

“I’m very proud to say that last year was our most successful, to date, which is a great credit to our donors and faithful supporters of the event.

“Last year, we raised nearly €40k which went towards the purchase of the new Andago rehab machine – the first in Ireland.

“We have had a lot of interest so far and we are really hoping that it will sell out this year. If you haven’t come along before, please do – you’re guaranteed a great day out and all for a good cause.”

This year’s Golf Classic event is almost sold out, but those who would still like to register can do so by emailing susan@friendsofrhd.ie
