Irish professionals Peter Lawrie and Gareth Maybin treated five service users of the RESPECT Ireland – the Official Charity of the Irish Open – to a clinic on the practice range at Carton House today.
The youngsters, all from the Dublin area, were given a ‘hands-on’ lesson in the basics of the game – and responded excitedly to the tuition from local lad Lawrie, a RESPECT Ambassador, and Northern Ireland’s Maybin.
Sr Zoe Killeen and Liam Walsh from RESPECT also enjoyed the chance to pick up some tips from the two golfers, who were equally delighted with the response.
“It was a pleasure to see Peter and Gareth giving so much pleasure to the youngsters” said Sr Zoe. “We are so proud to be the Official Charity of the Irish Open, and to see some of our service users inter-acting so well with the golfers gives us all a huge amount of pleasure.”
