The Friends of Ian St John are seeking support for a major Golf Classic at Killeen Castle on Monday, October 7.

The Tramore native and former Rush professional has been using a wheelchair since he was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma of the spine just three years ago.

More than €5,000 in prizes will be up for grabs at Killeen Castle on October 7, according to organiser Seamus Muldowney.

A team of four costs €280 for the 12 pm shotgun start and the day's golf at the magnificent Jack Nicklaus designed, Solheim Cup course will be followed by dinner and a raffle.

Ian's life changed forever in August 2016 when he became paralysed and a subsequent MRI revealed a massive tumour on his spine.

Thankfully, Ian's cancer is in remission, but he remains paralysed and was sadly forced to resign his position as Head PGA Professional at Rush.

To enter a team in the Golf Classic at Killeen Castle on October 7, email your team line up - team name, captain, contact number - to greatrishgolf@gmail.com.

For all queries, please contact Seamus Muldowney on 057 864 5654 (landline) or 086 059 6114 (mobile).
