The Challenge invited GAA members to represent their GAA clubs on the golf course with the aim of bringing home the All-Ireland title. Four-person teams from across Ireland, the US and the UK competed for the Waterford Crystal replica of the Liam MacCarthy Cup as well as other individual and prizes for their club. For the sixth consecutive year, the winning club also received a training weekend at the stunning Derg Isle facility in Scariff, Co Clare. Shandonagh GAA club in Co. Westmeath were crowned this year’s winners in an competitive field, see image below.

Established in 2000, the KN Group All-Ireland GAA Golf Challenge has firmed its position as the premier golf competition for GAA members. The organising committee are all volunteers and profits from the Challenge are directed towards charities with GAA Connections. This year, the thoroughly-deserving Michaela Foundation, a national youth charity, created in the memory of Michaela McAreavey, was one of the beneficiaries.

 

All-Ireland GAA Golf Challenge organising committee chairman Liam Daniels said: “It’s a great honour for the Challenge to be associated with an organisation as worthy as Michaela Foundation. We recognise not only that it commemorates an incredible human being in Michaela McAreavey but is steeped in the same GAA values of community and volunteerism that we hold dear.”
