Kerins O’Rahilly’s Golf Classic fundraiser to help refurbish Healy Park.
Calling all golfers – what are your plans for Good Friday?Whether you fancy yourself as the next Rory McIlroy, or you’re more of a ‘Scrubber’ – Kerins O’Rahilly’s needs you!
We are launching a major fundraising drive to help finance an extensive refurbishment of the pitches and facilities at Healy Park, Ballyrickard. The event is a Golf Classic, which takes place on Friday 29th March (Good Friday) - at Tralee Golf Club.
Huge thank you to Norman and Elaine Foley of Foleys Spar who have come on board as the main sponsor.
Healy Park is used extensively by all Kerins O’Rahilly’s teams, especially our juveniles and ladies for Kerry LGFA games.
We estimate that the refurbishment works planned, will cost in the region of €45,000, involving renovations to existing dressing rooms and toilets and extensive repairs to the roof and internal floors.
This will be the first phase of a five-year plan, which will ultimately involve replacing the existing dressing rooms with a permanent structure to include better dressing rooms, a sports hall and a gymnasium.
Club Chairman Oliver Molloy describes Healy Park as the club’s ‘nursing ground’.
“It’s where we bring our kids to experience what it’s like to be part of a club, to make friends that will last a lifetime, and to coach them to become the very best players they can be,” he says.
“As a club we have a duty of care to our juvenile and LGFA players to ensure that they have the best facilities possible. This fundraiser will enable us to bring our existing facilities to an acceptable level, while giving us the opportunity to plan for the future.”
Teams of four for the Golf Classic will cost €750.
