Dun Laoghaire and Mullingar golf clubs became the latest courses in the country to be showered in flamingo pink in aid of Breast Cancer Research.
The fairways came awash with vibrant pink at both clubs recently while again it was a case of even those left behind amid Covid-19 getting in on the act, proudly donning pink and donating from their gardens in support of such a great cause.
And we might sound like a broken record at this stage but we can’t emphasise enough how important this cause is. One in eight women will develop breast cancer in the course of their lifetime, while one in 1000 men will also be affected. In-all, there are 3100 new cases diagnosed each year in Ireland.
So, we can’t recommend Playing in Pink enough in terms of showing your support to our national charity which funds a comprehensive research programme at the Lambe Institute at NUI Galway.
Not only are the days vital fundraisers for Breast Cancer Research but they’re filled with lots of fun and boast eye-catching fashion and action packed golf.
Last year there were 130 ‘Play in Pink’ days around the country which have raised over €160,000 in 2019 alone, no mean feat in a time where there are so many worthy causes to support.
Well done to everyone who took part this time around at Dun Laoghaire and Mullingar – it looked like a lot of fun out there and all for the greater good too!
The golfing year may have suffered so far but we’d encourage you to get your club on the roster for 2020 – there’s still plenty to play for.
