Charity Golf Classic raises €4k for Our Lady’s Hospice
A CHARITY Golf Classic that was held in Westmanstown Golf Club earlier this month in aid of Our Lady’s Hospice has raised over €4,000.
Noel Cavanagh, who is originally from Crumlin but has lived in Kilnamanagh for over 40 years, had his “eyes opened” after seeing the care the hospice gave to his late brother Gerard Cavanagh, who passed away last January aged 63-years-old.
Gerard suffered from pancreatic cancer, and spent the last three months of his life in the care of Our Lady’s Hospice in Harold’s Cross.
Speaking in August ahead of the golf classic, Noel told The Echo: “The hospice opened our eyes to what the people there do, so I’m determined to raise funds for them.
“I want to highlight what they do, and I want to repay the hospice and help them along.”
Noel added that Gerard was a keen musician, and that one of the highlights of Gerard’s time in the hospice was when Christy Moore performed there just before Christmas, and signed Gerard’s guitar.
The golf classic was a success, raising over €4,000 for Our Lady’s Hospice.
Noel wanted to extend his thanks to the readers of The Echo who supported the golf classic, and whose donations helped raise money for a charity close to him and his family.
