A golfing extravaganza was held at New Ross Golf Club on Wednesday in memory of the late great ladies' captain Maeve Wilson who passed away in February - raising vital funds for the National Breast Cancer Research Institute.

Lady Captain Maeve's Charity 'Pink Day', in aid of the National Breast Cancer Research Institute, drew a large group of golfers.

Event spokesperson Marguerite Sutton said: 'Maeve was definitely looking down on us. The weather was absolutely superb and the conditions on the course were excellent. We had a full time sheet all day and everyone contributed to the raffle and putting competition also.'

Marguerite thanked all the clubs and golfers who supported the cause and made it a successful and enjoyable event, as well as the sponsors.

She said the country's 20 best Nett and six best Gross women's scores will qualify for the national finals in Glasson, Westmeath, in September.

'Congratulations to all the winners and let us continue enjoying walking the fairways for 2018.

Cancer Research helps improve treatments and outcomes for women in Ireland and across the world - may we continue to support this great cause.'
