Tom Flavin, President of Limerick Central Rotary Club, expressed his enthusiasm for hosting this event in light of the announcement in February.

“We are delighted to host our annual golf classic, which honours one of our founding members Don Reddan and raises vital funds to support charities in Limerick and nationally. This year, our nominated charity is the Irish Cancer Society – we know that cancer affects so many people in our community and this is a vital cause we are proud to support”.

Diarmuid Reddan, Don’s son, said: “We’re delighted that Dad’s memory lives on in the Annual Charity Golf Classic. Like so many people in Limerick, he supported many great causes during his life, and it would mean so much to him that this work is being continued in his name.”

The Don Reddan Annual Charity Golf Classic is not only an opportunity to pay tribute to Don Reddan’s legacy but also a chance to support Irish Cancer Society.

Rosemary Simmons, Director of Fundraising & Marketing at the Irish Cancer Society said: “We are delighted to be chosen as the beneficiary of this year’s Don Reddan Golf Classic. Every year in Ireland around 45,000 people hear the words ‘you have cancer’.

Thanks to events like these, the Irish Cancer Society remains the largest voluntary funder of cancer research in Ireland.”

Participants in the golf classic can expect a day filled with excitement, friendly competition, and the satisfaction of knowing they are supporting a worthy cause. Teams interested in participating can register for a four-ball scramble at €250 per team by contacting Ger Lynch on 086 215 2103.
