The 29th Jill Donnelly Golf 2019 proved to be another great success. The return of our loyal supporters and the addition of some new teams made this a great business and entertainment networking event.
Committee and generous donors dedication to making this event so successful has raised in excess of €1,473,000.00 to date and we are currently on track to add a fantastic net-total of €40,000/ €50,000 (funds still being counted ) to these funds, that will facilitate the purchase of a new wheelchair accessible bus for St. Michael's House.
This bring the total of buses funded by the Jill Donnelly Golf event to 28!
