Lifting Limerick Committee has announced Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd May 2015, as the date to once again host their popular, Lifting Limerick Annual Golf Event at Adare Manor Hotel & Golf Resort.

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 fifth year of its five year initiative.





Each year Lifting Limerick nominates a local 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 is a registered charitable organisation, founded in 2007 to fill a great need – provide financial assistance to families from Ireland who have children undergoing long-term medical treatment for critical illness with their non-medical day to day expenses e.g. accommodation, food, petrol and other miscellaneous expenses incurred by families who need to travel with their sick child to hospitals or other medical facilities for frequent treatments.

This year there is expected to be fierce competition as there are four chances to be a Hole in One winner! There are amazing prizes to be won including two golfing trips away and a set of Taylor Made Golf Clubs. But the highlight of the day is the opportunity to win the World Car of the Year, a Mercedes C-Class, presented by Frank Hogan Motors. All you have to do is get a hole in one at the 11th hole.

The four outstanding prizes are featured on Holes 4, 6, 11 and 16 as follows:-

Hole 4

A 3 night stay for 2 at 5* Praia D’El Rey Marriott Golf & Beach Resort in Portugal to include flights, half board accommodation, car hire & golf.

Hole 6

Hole 11

The Golf Classic this year will be a stableford team of 4 event with best 2 scores to count at each hole.
