PIETA House will be the benificiaries of the second annual Billy Kennedy Ryder Cup this November 24 at Adare Manor hotel and golf resort.

Billy, who was at the forefront of everything in Adare, tragically lost his life on July 16 2010 and the competition in his memory, an initiative of his friends and family, debuted last year.

There will be 96 golfers playing in the event, including family and friends with well known names including Lee Harrington, Mark Foley and Peter Lawlor playing on the day.

The main sponsor is Charlie Chawke and other sponsors include former Limerick hurlers and local businesses.

The committee is raising as much money as possible for Pieta House and so are asking anyone that knew Billy on or off the field to sponsor a tee-box at a cost of €50. Contact: PJ Carroll 086-6088178 or Vinny Foley 0876187741.
