Each year, Cobh Golf Club chooses three charitable organisations, which are receiving financial contributions by the Club. The Men’s Section of the Golf Club chose St. Mary’s School in Rochestown this year. A 3-ball competition was held on Friday, 29 April in aid of St Mary’s. Friday evening, helped by income from the competition and further funds provided by the Club, a cheque of €2,000 was presented to Mary Conroy, the Principal of the school. A great Day of Golf, Music provided by the Frahills, and a Good Cause all combined and made for great atmosphere in Jack Doyle’s in the evening!

St. Mary’s School in Rochestown is dedicated to teach and support children from 4 to 18 years with mild learning disabilities.
