A fundraiser for the Irish Cancer Society in association with Roscommon Golf Society and Carrick-on-Shannon Golf Club will take place in Carrick on Friday, July 22nd.

The event will include the Society Captain’s outing in the form of an 18-hole competition, followed by the presentation of prizes at the clubhouse in Carrick as well as a raffle and auction in aid of Irish Cancer Society.

Almost 45,000 people are diagnosed with cancer in Ireland each year. Members of both our golf organisations are, unfortunately, numbered among that list.

Incidence of cancer in Ireland is growing. However, more people are surviving cancer than ever before. Much of this is down to generous support from you, the Irish public, who have enabled the Irish Cancer Society to invest circa €27 million in research projects and initiatives since 2010.

The fundraiser at Carrick-on-Shannon Golf Club is aimed at adding further support to that magnificent work. The simple reality is that the research carried out by the Irish Cancer Society saves thousands of lives each year. By supporting events like this you have, and will continue to, played a significant part in that work.

Roscommon Golf Society and Carrick Golf Club appeals to people across Leitrim, Roscommon and further afield, to support this event.

 To support this fundraiser, you can play in the Captain’s Outing as a member of visitor (tee times available from 2 pm on Thursday, 21st and 11.30 am on Friday 22nd). You can also attend or donate an item to the auction or buy a ticket for the raffle, both of which take place in the clubhouse at approximately 6 pm.
