Roger has asked me to give a plug to an upcoming Mayo-related event in London, which I’m happy to do. This is a fundraiser which is being hosted jointly by Cáirde Mhaigheo London and the Mayo Golf Society London and it’s due to be held at the Mill Hill Golf Club in North London on Friday 29th June.
The price for a team of four at this event will be £400 (that’s the Queen’s money, by the way, not our poor flailing Euro) which includes green fees and covers the evening meal afterwards. If you’re not a golfing person – and I’d be in the good walk ruined camp myself – you have the option of sponsoring a hole (sounds dodgy, I know, but it is a worthy fundraiser) for £100. If you’re just after the evening spuds, you can get that on its own too, at a cost of £25.
Shotgun start (no, I haven’t a clue what that means either) on the day is set for 1.30pm. If you want to take part, then you should contact either Tom Moloney on +447800 941586 (07800 941586 in the UK ) or Mick Feehan on +447850 260680 (07850 260680 in the UK). Cairde Mhaigheo London are also on Twitter at @cairdemoldn and they’ll be providing further info on the event from that source as well.
