Lifting Limerick Annual Golf Event in aid of Clionas Foundation



Lifting Limerick Annual Golf Event takes place at Castletroy Golf Club on Thursday 16 and Friday 17 June 2016. Lifting Limerick is an association of like-minded supporters of Limerick hurling who have come together to help re-invigorate interest in Limerick hurling through the provision of a platform over a sustained period that will deliver the success that Limerick hurling deserves. This is Lifting Limerick’s sixth year of its initiative.

Each year Lifting Limerick nominates a locally based charity to benefit from various fundraising events that they hold.  This year Lifting Limerick is aiming to raise €10,000 for Cliona’s Foundation through their Hole in One challenge and other activities.

Cliona’s Foundation provides financial assistance for families with children who have a life limiting illness for non-medical expenses. Such expenses would include travel, accommodation, car parking fees, childcare care costs, specialised equipment – the “ hidden costs” associated with the care and treatment of a  child over a prolonged period of time.

Cliona’s Foundation is the only charity providing this assistance across all life limiting conditions and up to the age of 16 years and since its launch in 2007 has supported more than 310 families all over Ireland and raised in excess of €1m.


The Foundation receives a minimum of 2 new applications a week for funding and in 2016 we hope with your support to help 160 families. This year there is expected to be fierce competition as there are three chances to be a Hole in One winner!  There are amazing prizes to be won including a holiday in the sun to the value of €1,200 and a weekend away in Ireland to the value of €600. But the highlight of the day is the opportunity to win a Mercedes C-Class, presented by Frank Hogan Motors. All you have to do is get a hole in one at the 14th hole.

The three outstanding prizes are featured on Holes 5, 11, 14:

Hole 5 – A sun Holiday to the value of €1,200 or cash equivalent    

Hole 11 – A weekend away in Ireland to the value of €600 or cash equivalent         

Hole 14 – Brand new Mercedes CLA – Class 180 kindly provided by Frank Hogan LTD.

The Golf Classic this year will be a stableford team of 4 event with best 2 scores to count at each hole.  Dinner and Prize presentation will take place on Friday evening 17th June at 8pm with special guest speaker Entry fee for a team of four is €1,000.
