The weather was kind to TIGS yesterday after the terrible downpour on Wednesday the sun shone and on a typical links course the golf went ahead and all who participated in the first TIGS outing of 2017 had a great day out.
Sponsoring TIGS for the first time, Shannon Airport were generous hosts with Declan Power and Isabel Harrison on hand to ensure all were well looked after, promising – with some help from the audience – to continue with their sponsorship in the future.
The new TIGS Captain for 2017, Martin Skelly, was delighted with the turnout of 48 golfers for the first outing of the year and thanked Shannon Airport for their support.
The next TIGS outing on 27th April is to Powerscourt and will be sponsored by Amadeus.
