RNLI golf clas­sic pro­ceeds pre­sented

Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS -

THE re­cent Arklow RNLI Golf Clas­sic was a re­sound­ing suc­cess, rais­ing €3,600 for the Arklow Lifeboat.

Arklow Golf Club hosted the event which has been run­ning for over 40 years, and club cap­tain Mark Byrne pre­sented the pro­ceeds to Michael Mor­daunt, fundrais­ing chair­man re­cently.

The main event spon­sor is Arklow Ship­ping Ltd, and the golf clas­sic has been a pop­u­lar out­ing in Arklow for golf en­thu­si­asts for many years. This year saw club mem­bers, lo­cal golf so­ci­ety mem­bers and teams from lo­cal busi­nesses take part. Started in the 1950s the event was the brain­child of Christy Mul­let who named it the Lifeboat Rum­ble. In the 1970s Mary and Nick Tan­cred took over as or­gan­is­ers un­til the late 1990s when Ed­die Howlin came on board. Two years ago Mark Cana­van took on the role of or­gan­iser and con­tin­ues to en­sure that the RNLI Golf Clas­sic is a well sup­ported fundraiser.

Mark Byrne presents €3,600 to Michael Mour­daunt and the Arklow RNLI fundrais­ing com­mit­tee from the Arklow RNLI Golf Clas­sic.
