Join Paul McGrath this August!
We are urging sporting fans to take part in our first Paul McGrath Golf Classic on 31st August in Rathaspeck Manor in Wexford. Join the Irish footballing legend for a fantastic golf day and the chance to pot a hole-in-one for brain injury.
Paul McGrath’s Thoughts
A supporter of Acquired Brain Injury Ireland, Paul McGrath said: “I’m delighted to support the first Paul McGrath Golf Classic and to help raise vital funds for people affected by brain injury. I know the Acquired Brain Injury Ireland team here in Wexford and I have immense admiration for the great work they do. Nobody ever thinks a brain injury will happen to them but unfortunately it can happen all too easily, even after a simple fall. I hope lots of people will join us to raise vital funds for this charity so we can help turn people’s lives around after brain injury while enjoying a fun game of golf here in sunny Wexford!”

Importance of fundraising
Jonathan Power, our Head of Fundraising said: “We are delighted to have the support of Paul McGrath to launch this unique fundraiser in aid of our charity. Paul is one of the greatest ever Irish soccer players and his support will help us raise vital funds so more people have a chance to rebuild their lives after the trauma of brain injury. With only 50 team spots available, I’d advise people to sign up as soon as possible. We’ve also got great prizes on the day including tickets to the All-Ireland Final and tickets to a Republic of Ireland home match of your choice. So bring your best game because we’ll be looking for the best team, closest to the pin and the longest drive!”
Money raised from the Paul McGrath Golf Classic will support our rehabilitation services available in Wexford and nationwide.
Every year there are 19,000 acquired brain injuries in Ireland from causes including stroke, road traffic accidents and falls. This event is important to raise funds so brain injury survivors can continue to rebuild their lives.
