Malahide Golf Club gets arty to sup­port Hospice

Fingal Independent - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

GOLF gave way to art at Malahide Golf Club re­cently when the club hostes its An­nual Art Ex­hi­bi­tion.

It is a char­ity event held ev­ery year at the golf club where some of its more artis­tic mem­bers who are part of an Art Group display their wares on the golf club walls and raise money for a wor­thy cause.

That most wor­thy of causes this year was St Fran­cis Hospice and one of the high­lights of the event each year, is the raf­fle of a paint­ing by a well-known artist.

This year, the paint­ing raf­fled was a paint­ing en­ti­tled ‘The Light­house at Old Head of Kin­sale’ by Jeanette Bro­phy.

The raf­fle was a mas­sive suc­cess, rais­ing a whop­ping €1,500 for a grate­ful St Fran­cis Hospice.

The Mayor of Fin­gal, Cllr An­thony Lavin (FG) did the hon­ours in open­ing the ex­hi­bi­tion which was en­joyed by all who at­tended in­clud­ing the artists who got to display their work pub­licly in this unique ex­h­bi­tion.

Well done to ev­ery­one in the Art Group who put the event to­gether and thanks goes from the group to all who at­tended.
