The Irish Amputee Football Association held their Inaugural FootGolf Classic on Saturday 19 September at Footgolf Dublin. The event was a roaring success as teams of 4, young and old, from across the country competed for an array of top prizes. Players enjoyed a round of golf, a meal, the Ireland - Canada rugby match, a prize giving ceremony, raffle and charity auction. Johnstown FC, Meath, won the event with an incredible overall score of 233. One of their team members even equalled the course record held by James McClean and Jamie Carragher. They were the only team to score better than the IAFA foursome, 258. FC Bellew and Martin McQuillan's team, both Dundalk, took second and third places respectively. The IAFA would like to extend their sincerest thanks to all those who took part on the day, to the numerous companies who sponsored the event, to FootGolf Dublin and The Whitehouse pub, and to everyone who gave so generously on the day. Approximately €7,000 was raised on the day, all of which will go towards the further development of Amputee Football in Ireland, giving any person who has lost a limb or suffers from a limb affecting disorder the opportunity to play football at both grassroots and International levels.
