Professional in Marathon Fundraiser

Tandragee Golf Club Professional Dympna Keenan runs the SSE Airtricity Dublin Marathon in aid of a Defibrillator for Tandragee Golf Club.

SSE Airtricity Dublin Marathon 2014 – Tandragee Golf Club Professional, Dympna Keenan along with Andrée Ardis will run the Dublin Marathon in aid of a Defibrillator for Tandragee Golf Club. The marathon takes place on Monday 27th October 2014.

This is Andrée’s first marathon and she is looking forward to the challenge. Dympna ran the Belfast City Marathon eight years ago so knows what to expect and even though their goal is to finish the marathon under four hours, ‘we will be happy just to finish’ said Dympna. Both ladies started their training sixteen weeks ago and have been very disciplined in following a tough training programme, Dympna went on to say ‘it takes up a lot of our time but there will be a great sense of satisfaction when we cross the finish line next Monday’.

‘The NICHS encourages sporting organisations to fundraise to buy such equipment and also suggest that clubs provide training of members of staff of the club in the use of the equipment even though people who are not trained can also use it’ said Dympna, ‘There has been a great response to the cause so far and it looks like we will raise enough money to purchase the Defibrillator for the golf club’.

To sponsor Dympna and Andrée call into the Pro Shop at the Golf Club.
