Annual Hospice Homecare team event a big success

The annual Four Lady Charity Team Event, in aid of Hospice Homecare, was played on Saturday, June 5 and Tuesday, June 8. This is one of the most popular competitions of the golfing season, with all proceeds going towards Hospice Homecare. The competition was once again very kindly sponsored by Paula Bishoff and Catherine McElligott of The Hair Shop.

The scoring was very high with the winning team consisting of Lady President Joyce Burbage, Mary Smyth, Siobhan Duffy and Mairead Garland returning a superb score of 93 points. This included two birdies on the par 3 ninth hole, which yielded eight points for the team. Another eight pointer on the front nine and two seven pointers on the back nine solidified the win. They clinched victory from the runners-up on 92 points, who claimed the spot on a countback.

A huge thank you to all those who helped organise this event and to all who played. The generosity of the ladies and gents of Dundalk Golf Club is most appreciated in supporting this very worthy cause.

Maura O’Callaghan, Director of the North Louth Branch, was delighted with the support again in 2021. North Louth Hospice was established almost 30 years ago and continues to do trojan work in supporting those diagnosed with cancer and their families. Some of the many services provided by the Hospice include assisting patients with transport to hospital appointments, provision of specialist Homecare Services, Home Help Support and Family Support.
