Do you have the drive to help us fight cancer? This year, our ever-popular Golf Classic will take place in Fota Island Resort, one of Ireland’s premier golf resorts, on Thursday the 19th of April and Friday the 20th of April. Funds raised will bring us closer to building the new Mercy Cancer CARE Centre. Teams consist of four players and the cost per team is €425. (Includes access to the driving range, green fees and a delicious meal in the Fota Island Golf Clubhouse following your round.)

Mercy Cancer CARE Centre
More than bricks and mortar, the Mercy Cancer CARE Centre is a community funded cancer centre providing hope and healing close to home. For the one in three of us who will be diagnosed with cancer in our lives, at the Mercy, we want to be sure that that news is told in the most supportive way possible. We are building a specialised Cancer Centre next to the Mercy Hospital that will provide a quiet safe place for patients and their family to help deal with bad news. Read more about the Centre here.
Volunteer organisers, Jack French and Brian Dunphy (former Board Chairman) give so generously of their time to make the Mercy Golf Classic one not to be missed! Pictured above L-R, Brian Dunphy and Jack French.
“I have been fundraising for the Mercy Hospital since 1979, and this is the most exciting project so far. I enjoy raising funds for the Mercy, as it is a great local institution and one where I can see firsthand the impact of the funds raised on the lives of those using the services of the Mercy.” – Brian Dunphy –
” As a result of being self-employed most of my working life, I was constantly approached to subscribe to charitable events of all kinds. I always wanted to give my time to a local charity that was focused on a particular goal and the Mercy Hospital Foundation does just that. Organising a Golf Classic was my first preference as I’ve been involved in this type of fundraising for many years with my local GAA club. I support the Mercy as it is a local charity and one that is very close to my heart.” – Jack French –
