29 May 2015 No Comments by The Northern Standard

The second Monaghan GAA Perpetual Golf Classic will take place at Rossmore Golf Club this Saturday, May 30.

The Golf Classic will once again raise money for the training fund of the county senior football team, whose win over Cavan means they are now preparing for another Ulster SFC semi-final between the winners of Sunday’s game between Fermanagh and Antrim.

Teams of four will compete for the unique trophy which has been designed and manufactured by the classic’s sponsor, Brendan McAree of McAree Engineering. Players will also play for a chance to win exclusive prizes including four golf buggies, four golf watches, four golf bags and four pairs of golf shoes. There will also be a hole-in-one competition, with a prize of €1,000 sponsored by Phillip Treanor, NYC. All proceeds from this will be in aid of Monaghan Hospice and the Ronald McDonald House charity, which supports ill children and their families.

In addition to the prizes, there will also be a three-course meal served in the clubhouse throughout the day, with refreshments also being provided for players at the ninth hole. After the day of golfing, there will be a night of entertainment provided in Rossmore Clubhouse, which is to include live music and a questions and answers session featuring some local and national sporting heroes. The ‘Up for the Championship’ Q&A panel will start at 9.30pm, featuring Monaghan senior manager Malachy O’Rourke, along with former Dublin footballers Charlie Redmond and Mick Deegan and ex-Armagh star and current pundit, Oisín McConville. Music will be performed by Kelle Redmond and Mick McCarthy.

Entry fee for a team of four players is €250 and..
