Dun Laoghaire Golf Club Charity Day in aid of The Heartbeat Trust

A massive thank you and congratulations to our friends at Dun Laoghaire Golf Club on their successful charity day in aid of The Heartbeat Trust on September 17th. Over 80 people participated in the  competitive tournament with each team challenging the captain in a “Beat the Captain” at a par 3 to hit the ball closer to the pin. The event was followed by a reception and auction in the clubhouse. In total a tremendous €33,000 was raised in aid of the Trust. All proceeds will help us continue to support and improve services to predict and treat heart failure. 


The  support of the club is so much appreciated. Special thanks go to the committee Pat Durning (Chairman), John Traynor, Angela O’Sullivan, Jean Hennebry, Mary Rye, Alan Gormally and Una O’Grady. And to Club Captain Noel Mannion.

Noel said “As Captain of Dun Laoghaire Golf Club, I was delighted to nominate The Heartbeat Trust as my preferred charity for Captain’s Charity Day. It gives me great pleasure to present Prof. Ken McDonald with a cheque for €33,000 and I wish everybody in the Heart Beat Trust continued success with their outstanding work. Sincere thanks to all members of DLGC for their support on the day, to sponsors and all who made donations as well as all who supported the auction. Special thanks to a wonderful fundraising committee under the leadership of Pat Durning.

Prof McDonald, Clinical Director of the Trust said “Each year theTrust continues to advance our mission of preventing and caring for patients with heart failure. Through our programs we have seen many lives changed for the better. The Trust’s goal is to continue to make an impact on the prevention and treatment of heart failure and with the support of generous donations such as this we can continue to see advances in our research and services both locally and internationally.

Thank you to everyone who continues to generously supports the Trust. If you would like to host an event in aid of the Trust please contact Lisa at lisa@heartbeat-trust.org for further information.
