Gary Murphy, Damien Mc Grain, Philip Walton and David Higgins as well as PGA Captain Phil Collins and Mark Staunton are among the big names in Irish golfing who will play in the 18-hole Connolly’s Red Mills Charity Pro-Am at the Mount Wolseley Hotel, Spa and Country Club.

The Connolly brothers and fellow golfing enthusiasts are digging deep for the event at Mount Wolseley tomorrow (Thursday).

“We are delighted to be in a position to facilitate this event and in doing so raise much-needed funds for the Sapling schools in Carlow/Kilkenny,” said Bill Connolly. “The school is a much-needed resource and the support provided for the pupils is crucial to both them and their families.”

Saplings runs schools in Goresbridge and Graigecullen, supporting children with autism and other complex needs and their extended families.
