From the vaults ...The 1995 Official Opening   25/11/2019

By sheer chance at the weekend ,I came on an audio cassette recording from 1995  (when Rory McIlroy was 6)  of the official opening of the Clubhouse and Links.

The then Minister for Tourism Enda Kenny TD speaks to a packed but very attentive audience and MWR's Paul Claffey also interviews Eddie Hackett and by his own admission a slightly worse for wear Christy Snr on the night before he played an exhibition fourball  with Leslie Robinson, Alex Melia and the late Charlie McGoldrick the following day.

The official opening of the Clubhouse in Carne can be listened to here

Many Thanks to my Dad Frank Donnelly for firstly recording the MWR broadcast on the night and then keeping in great condition and somehow not recording over the tape for the last 24 + years.
