KILLARNEY, JUNE 24th 2024: The launch of the 23rd annual Circet All-Ireland GAA Golf Challenge took place in Killarney Golf and Fishing Club in Mahony’s Point this morning.


Forty years after they captained their respective counties to All-Ireland senior titles in the GAA’s centenary year, Kerry and Cork greats Ambrose O’Donovan and John Fenton along with Kilkenny legend and Challenge patron Eddie Keher were on hand to lend their support to the charity four-person team event, which will take place at Killarney GC on October 17th and 18th.

Kerry and Glenflesk Gaelic football luminaries, 2000 All-Ireland SFC winning captain Seamus Moynihan and three-time All-Ireland SFC medalist Johnny Crowley, were also in attendance to promote this year’s beneficiary, their friend and fellow clubman Jerry O’Leary.

Twelve months ago, Jerry suffered serious spinal injuries in a devastating accident while walking home. He is wheelchair-bound and requires intensive physiotherapy as well as other medical supports.


The Circet All-Ireland GAA Golf Challenge sees four-person teams from Ireland and the US represent their GAA clubs on the golf course. Forty-five teams in total will converge on Killarney in October to compete for the specially-commissioned Waterford Crystal replica of the Liam MacCarthy Cup, which was won by Tipperary club Clonoulty-Rossmore on the majestic Killeen and O’Mahony’s Point courses.

Run on an entirely voluntary basis in which all proceeds go to charitable causes, the Challenge is the premier golf competition for GAA members. The Challenge has been raising funds for GAA-affiliated causes and members in need for several years. In 2023, the beneficiary was The Dillon Quirke Foundation while in previous years the Challenge has been able to provide financial assistance to Ian O’Connell (Spa), Fionn McAnaney (Raharney), Conor Connolly (Castlederg) and Darragh Dooley (Ballyduff Lower).

Speaking at the launch, Circet All-Ireland GAA Golf Challenge organising chairman Liam Daniels said: “Jerry’s cause is one the Challenge are honoured to get behind. Jerry is a well loved and respected member of his community and we are delighted to join the fundraising drive to help him and his family.

“Our great friend Ian O’Connell from Spa is here today and to see the great progress he has made in recent years and his heartening approach to life after his own accident is a genuine inspiration.

“I wish to thank our long-standing sponsors Circet who fully appreciate what we have been doing down through the years in particular Donagh Kelly and Vanessa Cunningham. They are more friends than sponsors and their understanding of our efforts is vital to the success of the Challenge.

“I also want to pay tribute to our patrons Eddie Keher, Seán Kelly, Barney Rock, Gerry O’Reilly and Declan Devine for their continuing support for the Challenge. The way in which they promote it and the charitable causes is a measure of their generosity and decency.”

Sunshine, super scoring and style were all the ingredients Lady Captain Maire Ni Loinsigh used on Saturday 22nd June in making her Lady Captains Day so successful. The ladies of Beaufort braved the course early on Saturday morning, each with intent on bringing in a good score. And there was some very sharp shooting on the day !! Following the golf, the glitz and glamour took over the club house as the ladies enjoyed their lunch and the warm atmosphere though the anticipation filled the air while waiting for the 2024 winner to be announced. Lady Captain Maire welcomed all her lady members and distinguished guests with a fluent cúpla focal before getting down to the serious business of announcing the results. The fantastic score of 66 nett was brought in by none other then the talented golfer who hails from Tralee, Hannah Moynihan. Hannah had played steady and consistent golf for the full 18 holes making her winning score all the sweeter. Lady Captain Maire would like to thank all the ladies for their dedication and support on her big day and was delighted to see such a good turnout.
