Jim’s Day: We are overwhelmed with the support we received from the 80 golfers who played on the day, to all the people who sponsored and to the people who made donations and bought raffle tickets, we will be forever thankful.

Setting out to organise the event, we thought if we raised €5,000 it would brilliant. However, we surpassed that by a long way and raised €9,685 for the Oncology Unit in Cavan General Hospital.

With so many people to thank we don’t know where to start.

A special thanks to the following :

Kevin at Mannan Castle Golf Club , Atb Sign and Print,  Kevin Gorman for all the photos, Kieran Byrne for marking all the cards, Stevie Ormiston for donating Water and Bars, Our Tee Box sponsors, all the people who give donations, all the people who donated raffle prizes and for all the trophies.

Finally a huge Thank You to Tommy Ormiston and the Gorman Family for all their work to make such a memorable day.
