Melbourne, Daly and Casey team among the winners at big Tipperary Golf Classic

A wonderful weekend was had by all at the Rockwell Rovers, Willie Flynn Memorial Golf Classic at Dundrum. The GUI team winners were Trevor Melbourne Team – Trevor Melbourne, Anthony Daly, Noel Casey

A wonderful weekend was had by all at the Rockwell Rovers, Willie Flynn Memorial Golf Classic. The weather was a blessing as we had the sunshine for both days.
Lots of teams entered the arena in Dundrum House Hotel, Golf & Leisure Resort, some left very happy, others just had fun!
Thanks to MBC Timber Frame Ltd. for sponsoring this event. The club is very grateful for your continued support. We finished off the weekend in Barron's Bar, New Inn with a presentation to prize winners, followed by our raffle and auction.
The auction was a huge success and all monies raised in the auction is being donated to a charity very close to the Flynn family hearts “Cancer Clinical Trial Unit”, Cork University Hospital.
Thanks to all the hard-working Golf Committee who put in huge work for weeks to make this a great weekend. Thanks to the teams that came and played and supported our Golf Classic. Thanks to all that sold and bought raffle tickets, helped with food etc., your support is much appreciated.
Thanks to Dundrum House Hotel Golf & Leisure Resort Club for allowing us the use of their beautiful golf course over the weekend and Mary Frances Barron for facilitating the prize given and auction.
Finally, thanks to the Flynn family for supporting us all the way, Willie Snr (RIP) was one of Rockwell Rovers great clubmen.
This event was in recognition of Willie who not alone was a great within Rockwell Rovers but also within the New Inn community. The sudden and untimely passing of Willie touched everyone who knew him, and this was shown by the number of teams that supported the golf and the amount of people who attended Barron’s last night and contributed to the auction to raise funds for the chosen charity.
