Frank to help Fight for Fionn

Frank HollyCharleville PGA Professional Frank Holly is involved in a pretty unique and demanding fundraiser at the end of this month.  Frank along with a few friends is holding a golf marathon on Saturday 23rd April and he’s planning on playing golf for a full day to raise funds for 2 year old Fionn Barry.  Frank reckons that the group will play 100 holes during event: “We will tee off at sunrise, aprox 6am, and play until dark (just after 9pm).  We will have a 3 club rule, no honour on the tees (even though Cathal Hawe in the group is a stickler for the honour).  There won’t be any flags out on the greens, and we will attempt to jog the whole way round.”

Fionn  is almost 2 years old and he has spent most of his short life in hospital and despite this he is still fighting for answers.  Frank has roped in a few friends and there are currently six golfers lined up: “Playing golf on the day are Myself, Jamie Walsh PGA Professional, Mark Cagney, Cathal Hawe, Ivan Hanley and Peader Croning.  “All of us know Fionn’s parents well and want to try and raise as much money as possible as we have seen first hand the work they have put in over the last year or so to find answers to help Fionn.”

Each of the six golfers are collecting sponsorship and they are also accepting pledges,  So far Cavanaghs of Charleville, Lee’s Centra Charleville, Bulgedan Castle, Nora May’s Bar & Bistro pledging money.  Franks is delighted with the response to date and is hoping for many more people to get behind the event.

Fionn has a seriously debilitating and life limiting illness, which requires 24hr care.  Which has meant mum and dad are unable to return to work.  He will need numerous intensive treatments and therapies along with specialised equiptment.  All all of which are quite costly, but essential in improving his quality of life and to help him reach his full potential.
