Play in Pink day raises €7,225 for cancer research

Myles Buchanan

The annual 'Play in Pink Day' at Wicklow Golf Club raised over €7,000 for Breast Cancer Research.

Everything from the bunting on display to the attire the golfers wore were all different shades of pink.

The day consisted of ladies, men's and junior golf, afternoon tea, a raffle, auction and social evening and the club would like to thank all those that participated, sponsored, volunteered or helped in any way.

Early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer is key to survival. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in Ireland, excluding skin cancers, and one in ten Irish women will develop breast cancer during their lifetime.

The day raised an impressive €7,225, bringing the total amount raised by Wicklow Golf Club over the past three years to €18,640.

The results were as follows: 'Mens 18 Hole Singles V-Par (Blue) - first Paul Ronan (11) 5up (CB), second Jonathan Byrne (23) 5up (CB), third Barry Bradshaw (13) 5up (CB), Gross - Mark Kavanagh (6) 3down (B9), fourth Michael O'Rorke (13) 4up (CB), fifth Tim Thornton (15) 4up.
