THE Avon was the venue for the pre­sen­ta­tion of prizes for the an­nual Ciarán Jones Memo­rial Golf Clas­sic.

The clas­sic took place in Tulfarris back in Au­gust and was won by the team con­sist­ing of David Carty, Tom Davis, Kevin Cun­ning­ham and Mau­rice Keogh.

The Jones Fam­ily and the or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee would like to ex­press their sin­cere ap­pre­ci­a­tion to all who sup­ported this year’s event. This year’s de­serv­ing ben­e­fi­cia­ries were Ac­quired Brain In­jury Ire­land and Bless­ing­ton and Dis­trict Se­nior Cit­i­zens Care As­so­ci­a­tion.

Thanks to the tremen­dous sup­port re­ceived, a to­tal of €20,600 was raised this year which was di­vided equally and pre­sented to both char­i­ties at the so­cial and pre­sen­ta­tion night. A great night was had by all and The Ciarán Jones Per­son of The Year award was also pre­sented at the Avon, this year go­ing to Garda Michael O’Rourke, a very wor­thy re­cip­i­ent who has pro­vided tremen­dous sup­port and is al­ways on hand to help out in the lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties.

The Jones fam­ily said: ‘Once again, we thank the peo­ple of the lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties for their con­tin­ued gen­eros­ity and sup­port and for turn­ing up on the day in large num­bers. This event has gone from strength to strength each year and does so be­cause the peo­ple of Kil­bride, Bless­ing­ton and sur­round­ing ar­eas have been be­hind us all the way and shown such sup­port over the years.’
