On Friday 23rd March, ‘Daffodil Day,’ Dunfanaghy Lady Captain Janice Doherty and her committee ran a Coffee morning in aid of the Irish Cancer Society.
This was held in Dunfanaghy Golf Club and was very well supported by the Dunfanaghy community.
Janice made up a Hamper to raffle on the day and all of the Ladies on Committee contributed items for the hamper. Thank you also to all of the ladies who baked and donated items for the Coffee Morning and to Dunfanaghy Golf Club and staff for supplying the endless tea and coffee required.
There was so much support for this that the funds raised on the day were greatly in excess of that expected.
This fundraiser was suggested by Portsalon Lady Captain Karen McGlinchey from the Donegal and North West Lady Captains Group.
The overall figure raised between 3 clubs was €2,627 and between the draw for the Hamper and donations on the coffee morning Dunfanaghy Golf Club contributed €1280.
The Representative of the Irish Cancer Society Ena Barrett collected the Total Cheque from the 3 Lady Captains Rosie Agnew, Redcastle Golf Club, Janice Doherty, Dunfanaghy Golf Club and Karen McGlinchey, Portsalon Golf Club.
Thanks to everyone who helped to make this day the success that it was.

One of our very talented young members, Luke Kelly was a member of the RBAI golf team that won the Senior Ulster Schools Cup at the Hilton Templepatrick last week. RBAI now progress to the All Ireland Finals in Cork at the end of April.
Both semi-finals and final took place on the same day. Luke won both his semi-final match and final match- a fabulous achievement considering that Luke is the youngest member of the team.
We wish Luke and the RBAI team good luck in the All Ireland Finals. Luke's Dad, Paul now has to get used to the fact that he may not be the best golfer in the house for too much longer!
