KERRY soccer kingpins Killarney Celtic will be switching their attention to the smaller ball in the coming weeks when the club hosts its annual fundraising golf classic.

On the field, the club won everything worth winning last season but running such a successful sporting organisation comes at a price and the golf event is one of the biggest sources of income on an annual basis.

It has been arranged for Saturday, September 4 at Beaufort Golf Club and, although it clashes with the rescheduled date for the All-Ireland Football Championship final, a big turnout is anticipated.

What a season: Celtic’s haul of trophies on display in front of the John Doyle Stand which is dedicated to the memory of one of the club’s greatest ever players.

The entry fee for a team of four is €200 and a tee-box or green sponsorship is available for €50.

“Like all clubs, Killarney Celtic and its players missed out on more than a full season on and off the field. Thankfully, the club was involved in very successful summer competitions and is now beginning to look ahead to the 2021-2022 season which will begin at the end of this month,” said chairman Tim Jones.

Those interested in participating in the golf classic or people willing to sponsor a tee-box or a green should contact Tim on 087-9771302.
