For the 9th year and still going strong everyone enjoyed a great day of golf and sunshine on Friday 21 June 2019 for the annual Una Cunningham Memorial Golf Classic, set in the fabulous 18 hole Concra Golf Course.
Over 28 teams lined out to play in this hugely successful golf classic and enjoy the wonderful scenic Concra golf course. Many of the teams represented local businesses, families and many travelled especially for the occasion. Several of the teams have played in every classic since the event was launched 9 years ago.
The classic is organised each year by Owen Cunningham husband of the late Una Cunningham with his family and extended family. All funds raised by Owen and his family are donated to Castleblayney Cancer Society and to date the event has raised well in excess of €140,000 and funds raised on Friday 21st June raised in excess of €17,000 – truly remarkable!
Once again team players were treated to wonderful hospitality by the Cunningham family and the staff of the View restaurant in Concra Wood. The prizes were very generously sponsored by businesses associated with the Cunningham family and business.
The winners on the day;
1st Place - Heber McMahon, Kieran McMahon, Ronan McMahon & Johnny McGoldrick
2nd Place - Monaghan Co Enterprise Fund Team - Paul Shortt, Tony Carville, Andy Whelan & Nicky Hore
3rd Place - Traynor Engineers Belturbet Team - Liam McElgunn, Theo Coffee, Paddy Coffee & Darren Donohoe

Owen expressed his delight with the success of the event and was extremely grateful to each of the team members who turned out in such numbers to play. Owen thanked the many sponsors of the magnificent prizes. Castleblayney Cancer Society expressed their sincere gratitude and thanks for the huge efforts by the Cunningham family and friends who every year for 9 years organise the wonderful Una Cunningham Memorial Classic. The Society outlined how all the funds go towards assisting patients and their families in what can be very challenging times.
