Killarney Lions Club’s annual golf fundraising event, played on the Mahony’s Point course, was a fantastic success with 30 teams teeing-off on the day.

This was the 40th running of the charity event and to date it has raised in the region of €400,000 for local charities and this year the key beneficiaries are the Kerry Mountain Rescue Team and the Kerry Cancer Support Group.

Lions Club President, Denis Doolan, thanked all sponsors for their continued support, the Lions members who organised it for the time they put in to make it a great event and, of course, all the golfers who took part this year.
