THE Jack Lynch Memorial Open Week committee have announced they will be supporting children’s charity ISPCC again this year in association with corporate sponsors, Coneinn.

West Cork’s biggest golf event takes place from July 15th-22nd with open golf competitions throughout the week for men, seniors, juniors, mixed teams and ladies. Visitors are very welcome.

Fundraising ISPCC volunteers from the Cork office will be on hand over the final weekend to help raise cash.

The work of The Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (ISPCC) fosters better relationships between parents and children while promoting better understanding of children’s needs.

ISPCC Childline’s vision is to see an Ireland where all children are heard and valued.

Jack Lynch Committee Chairman, Noel Kearney, said, “The Jack Lynch Memorial Open Week is our flagship event and, with the hole-in-one car prize on offer this year, we’re anticipating large numbers of visitors.

“We have a strong commitment to junior golf at Skibbereen so we’re delighted to support such a worthy children’s cause.”

Charity caddies will also be available over the final weekend for the Jack Lynch Ladies’ Team Event and the Men’s three-man team classic at €20 per round

Half of all money raised from the charity caddies will go towards the ISPCC and half to Leap National School.

Caddies are pre-bookable only so if you would like to book a caddy for your Jack Lynch round of golf, or if you know any teenagers interested in caddying, please call Eamonn at the clubhouse on 028 21227.

There are fantastic prizes on offer including a men’s four ball at the Old Head of Kinsale, a ladies’ 3ball stay at Faithlegg Golf Club and of course the coveted Jack Lynch Classic trophy which will be played for over two days on July 21st-22nd.
