Now in its 17th year, the  event saw a host of celebrities from the world of sport, entertainment and music descend on the renowned K Club golf course in Kildare to enjoy a fantastic day of golf followed by a gala dinner, prize giving ceremony and entertainment.

This year saw 22 teams participate with high profile international celebrities such as Mike Tindall, Denise Van Outen, Shane Byrne and Stephen Hunt in attendance on the day.

Mike Tindall’s wife, Zara Phillips – a granddaughter of the Queen of England – also made an appearance.
The highly anticipated annual summer event has become recognised as one of the most respected Irish charity golf tournaments raising much needed funds for the Marie Keating Foundation which provides free cancer awareness programmes and support services for men and women in Ireland.

Marks & Spencer Ireland has been proudly supporting the Marie Keating Foundation for nearly 14 years and has played a vital role sustaining the fantastic services the Foundation provides.

Marks & Spencer Ireland has raised almost €2 million for the worthy charity to date.
