The Rotary Club of Cork Annual Golf Classic Fundraiser 2019

Friday 12th April 2019, a cold windy day in Cork Golf Club, saw the stalwarts of golf and intrepid supporters of this worthy cause take on 18 holes of challenging golf.
Thankfully the day stayed dry and the 60 Golfers enjoyed the day. The golf course was in excellent condition and the scoring was impressive.
Our sincere thanks to all the companies and individuals who contributed by Green Fees or Signage. With the assistance of Margaret Heffernan of Dunnes Stores, €6000 was raised for the Vincent de Paul in Cork City.
Individual credit must go to Aodh Bourke and his team who with their usual thoughtful attention to detail organised prizes for the golfers and erected Rotary signage around the club house in a most professional manner. The Rotary Perpetual Cup was won this year by Eugene Currivan.

 This was the first year that Rotary Clubs in Cork participated in the St. Patricks Day Parade through the city. Organised by Michael Shiels of Cork (Bishopstown) Club and his committee the occasion was colourful and vibrant and demonstrated to the people of Cork and to a wider audience the broad spectrum of charitabel activities undertaken by Rotary in Cork. Participating, along with members of our club, were Caroline Bourke and friends from Dublin Central, Monica Robinson (DG 1160),  incoming DG William Cross and family members. Connie Ovesen (DG Elect) was also in attendance.
A presentation was made to the Lord Mayor of Cork by Michael Shields, Tom Woodward and Ger Kilcommons of a Photograph of the Lord Mayor declaring the Rotary Tree of Remembrance Open during his term in office in December 2018. Over 40 Rotarians and their family members walked in the Parade.

Rotary Club of Cork International Charity Support  in Cambodia

This Project which was initiated in April 2017 by our club member John Foyle involves working with a local registered charity, ‘Global Village Housing’ in Cambodia. The first house was funded and provided by our club in 2017.

The Rotary Club of Cork has funded the provision and construction of a second house for a homeless family near Phnom Penh this year. Our club hopes to fund the ongoing development of this project, to provide housing for homeless and displaced families in Cambodia, into the future.
