O’Flynn Exhams was delighted to support this year’s Cope Foundation Golf Classic, a long-standing partnership between Cope Foundation and our firm.
It was the 21st year of the O’Flynn Exhams-sponsored Golf Classic, which has raised over €1.6 million to date. The funds raised from this year’s Golf Classic will go towards short breaks services for those with intellectual disabilities and/or autism and their families.
56 teams took part over the two days at Cork Golf Club, with Micheál Ó Mulláin, Shane Crossan, Conor Lupton, Sion Williams, Cian Duane and Frank O’Flynn representing O’Flynn Exhams.
The overall winning team was Manlift Hire, who accepted the Bord Gais Perpetual Trophy at Cork Golf Club. The team was represented by Donal Delaney, Noel O’Keeffe, Tim O’Donovan and Jim Hurley.
Speaking about this year’s event, Micheál Ó Mulláin, Partner, from O’Flynn Exhams said: “We were delighted to once again sponsor the Cope Foundation Golf Classic which is always an enjoyable event for all concerned. Cope Foundation continues to provide vital services to the people of Cork City and County and it was great to see so many from the Cork business community support this worthy cause”
