Rugby star goes a fair way for char­ity

HAV­ING al­ready been resched­uled once, due to abysmal weather and flood­ing at the Glen of the Downs Golf Club, the Reg­gie Cor­ri­gan golf clas­sic in aid of the Open Door Cen­tre fi­nally went ahead last Thurs­day, de­spite a damp start to the day.

There were 23 teams tak­ing part in the event, which is or­gan­ised an­nu­ally by Gerry Lis­ter, Sec­re­tary of the Open Door Board of Trustees.

They weren’t able to have golf bug­gies on the course at the start of the day, due to wet con­di­tions, and the fi­nal team actu- ally missed their last hole as it was get­ting too dark to play!

Sus­te­nance was on hand, how­ever, as the chef came out dur­ing the day de­liv­er­ing burg­ers to the weary play­ers - much to their col­lec­tive de­light.

Spon­sored by Green­star, there were plenty of prizes up for grabs on the day, in­clud­ing clubs and other gear as well as four-ball vouch­ers do­nated by var­i­ous clubs in the Wick­low area.

Suzanne Cox of Open Door said that the turnout was slightly down on pre­vi­ous years due to rain­fall and the fact that the date was moved, but that or­gan­is­ers are very grate­ful to those who did take part.

‘Every­one in­volved had a great day and said that they will take part again next year.’ Reg­gie him­self came sec­ond on the day, with a team com­posed of his dad, his brother, his un­cle and Kevin Keyes of Glen Fu­els.

Win­ners on the day were William McCarthy’s team from O’Kane En­gi­neer­ing.
