Leading investment management company Brewin Dolphin today announced that it will be an Official Sponsor for the Irish Open, one of The European Tour’s most prestigious titles, at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland from June 28 - July 1.
Brewin Dolphin, who have offices in both Belfast and Dublin and look after clients from all over Ireland, saw sponsorship of the Irish Open as an opportunity to raise awareness of the firm across the island.
This year Brewin Dolphin is celebrating its 250th anniversary with a number of exciting initiatives such as Chelsea Flower Show in London and the Commodores’ Cup in Cowes – so adding such a prestigious event like the Irish Open to the events calendar is very fitting.
The Irish Open returns to Northern Ireland for the first time in 59 years this year, making this a very special occasion for players and spectators alike.
Among the players competing in this year's Irish Open are the three recent Northern Irish Major winners - Graeme McDowell (2010 US Open Championship) Rory McIlroy (2011 US Open Championship) and Darren Clarke (2011 Open Championship).
Philip Browne, Marketing Director at Brewin Dolphin said: “We are so pleased to be able to join the Irish Open on The European Tour and it gives us such a wonderful platform to highlight the presence of our two nearest offices in Belfast and Dublin.”James Finnigan, The European Tour’s Commercial Director for the Irish Open, commented: “Brewin Dolphin is a welcome addition to The European Tour’s family of sponsors and we are delighted that they will be part of one of the most eagerly anticipated Irish Opens in many years.”
