Carnmore held the annual golf fund raising event on the 20th and 22nd of June. This was a very successful event with excellent sponsorship and a full compliment of teams taking part. With the weather up until this time being predictably bad it was an anxious week for the organising committee but in the end it turned fine!

This year the Carnmore Classic moved to the Athenry Golf Club, a fine course, excellent clubhouse and catering staff. The golf, the food and the welcome was enjoyed by all on both days of the event. A very special thanks to Athenry Golf Club and all the staff involved during the organising and ultimately the event itself.

The committee would particularly like to thank it’s sponsors for the event—the main sponsor, Michael Grealish, Carnmore Village—and Grealish’s Pub, Harry’s, Glynn’s Centra, Dunleavey’s Claregalway, Sean Crowe, Glass Center, Hanley’s Menswear, Terry Brennan’s, Galway Bay Golf Club, Thomas Fox of Ballinasloe Tyres, Galway Golf Club, Summerfield Bar, Conneely Furniture, James Giles at Claregalway Facia & Soffit, Iggy’s Bar Athenry, Grealish Fuels and also the many sponsors of team entries.

The event could not have gone so well without the many participants that took part, some in less than nice conditions. A very special thanks to all involved.

All prize winners were presented at Grealish’s pub on the Saturday night with first place prize going to a team of hearty Turloughmore men, a glitzy weekend away awaits them! The winning team was John Morris, John Forde, Jimmy McGrath and Mick Collins. Congratulations to them and all the prize winners.

We look forward to next year!
