Shannon Airport Sponsors TIGS at Portmarnock Links

 The weather was kind to TIGS yesterday after the terrible downpour on Wednesday the sun shone and on a typical links course the golf went ahead and all who participated in the first TIGS outing of 2017 had a great day out.

Sponsoring  TIGS  for the first time, Shannon Airport were generous hosts with Declan Power and Isabel Harrison on hand to ensure all were well looked after, promising – with some help from the audience – to continue with their sponsorship in the future.
