THE Friends of the Royal Hospital Donnybrook will host their annual Golf Classic on Tuesday, July 3 to raise much-needed funds for the hospital.

The event, now in its 27th year, will yet again be held at Elm Park Golf & Sports Club on Nutley Lane in Donnybrook.

Participants of all levels of golfing ability, from hopeful to expert, will play to raise money for a great cause.

Funds raised from the event will directly support the hospital’s vital work by helping to purchase leading state-of-the-art rehab equipment.

Speaking ahead of the event Oisín Quinn, Chairman of the Friends of the Royal Hospital Donny-brook 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 from the Golf Classic 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.”

Brendan Lynch, Board member at the Friends of the Royal Hospital Donnybrook, added: “This event is in its 27th year and I have had the pleasure of organising it 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 €40,000 which went towards the pruchase 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. The golf itself is a great day out and the dinner in the evening is always a lot of fun with raffles and fantastic prizes.

“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

The Friends of The Royal Hospital was founded by Dick Tennant.
