We will be holding our church gate collections on this Saturday & Sunday the 7th & 8th of June in Glounthaune, Little Island & Knockraha churches, please support.

Our annual golf classic takes places in Cork Golf Club, Little Island on fri.13th June. This longstanding fundraiser continues as a firm favourite on the annual Classics Calendar in Cork.
With our underage section continuing to expand and numbers increasing on a yearly basis, our club continues to face major challenges on and off the field of play. Catering for players by providing the required level of training, coaching and games is a major challenge, equally demanding is the ongoing requirement for improving and providing extra facilities. All of this means an ever increasing demand for finance, hence the importance of this fundraiser.

We have always received wonderful support for this event through the following means;
1. Direct sponsorship of the event. Any company can if interested become the main sponsor of this classic, or alternatively you may become a part sponsor.
2. Sponsorship of a green or tee at € 150.00
3. Participation in the classic ---- three man team @ € 180.00 per team.
We are confident that this golf classic will once again be another major contributor towards our ongoing ambitions.
We as the only parish based club certainly depend on the financial support of our membership and business community for continued existence and success.
Finally you're wonderful help over the years is much appreciated by all involved, and in conclusion we would appreciate if you would continue your assistance this year.
Yours in Appreciation,
