St. Michael’s House – Clontarf Friday Friends

Clontarf Friday Friends Season Ends

The Club’s Special Olympics Golf and Bowling Programme in partnership
with St Michael’s House  known as  “Clontarf Friday Friends”
completed its inaugural season last Friday. The  season which  ran
every Friday morning from May to September involved 25 club members
who acted as coaches in golf and bowling to a core of 60

C.F.F. appreciated the broad and deep support it found for the
initiative throughout all sections of the Club without which it would
have been difficult to sustain. In particular, it is indebted to Eamonn
Brady and his team for their continuous support throughout the season
which included coaching, advice and equipment and proved invaluable to
the smooth running of our Friday sessions.

Over  a year ago  we visited Elm Park Golf Club to learn of their
Programme which was established in 2005 and we were told that” their
weekly sessions were always such happy events that all involved came
away every time with a light heart ” that feeling was ever present in
our experience this year.

Finally C.F.F. will hold  a celebratory function in November to
officially mark the end of our first year at which there will be a
presentation of completion certificates to all the Golfers and Bowlers
to mark their attendance throughout the season.

Ray Maguire & Alan Smith.
