Cavanagh’s of Charleville, the well-known and biggest Ford Main Dealership outside of Dublin, will mark the Ford 100 centenary in Charleville by being the main sponsor of a fund raising Golf Classic in aid of Charleville Chamber, to be held over the weekend of 26th May next at Charleville Golf Club.
The event was launched at Charleville Golf Club last Thursday in the presence of Cavanagh’s of Charleville managing director Martin Condon, Cavanagh’s sales manager. James Foley, the golf professional at Charleville Golf Club, Mark Collins and the President of Charleville Chamber, P.J. McCarthy.
Launching the golf classic Mr. Condon said that all at Cavanagh’s of Charleville were delighted to be associated with the upcoming event as they recognised the important work that Charleville Chamber was doing for the town of Charleville.
“Cavanagh’s Garage has been in Charleville over forty years and in that time we have seen our business grow and make a significant financial contribution to the local economy through the employment we have generated.
“It is hugely important that we have a business oriented and proactive body like the Chamber working to attract more business and facilities into the town., thus helping the townspeople and those living in its hinterland to prosper from the employment generated by local entrepreneurs and business people. We are delighted to be in a position to support them in this endeavour”, he said.
Welcoming his comments the President of the Chamber, PJ McCarthy said that Cavanagh’s Garage had provided valuable employment opportunities for many people since they set up business in Charleville, where they currently have 65 employees on their payroll. “Cavanagh’s of Charleville have won numerous national awards recognising the excellent customer care service they provide and the commitment and dedication of their staff. They look after and value their customers and reap the rewards accordingly, and they set the bar for other industries in the town and area. We are delighted they are our main sponsor for our golf classic especially in this year when the Ford Motor Company are celebrating the centenary of their foundation.
“Charleville Chamber continues to seek to put in place the conditions to attract more inward investment into Charleville and to create a safe and pleasant environment in which to live, work and play. We have a great relationship with the traders and businesses of the town, and the past weekend has seen the close of the tendering process for the erection of a CCTV system where cameras will be placed strategically throughout the town to ensure the safety of traders, shoppers and motorists. The system will be monitored at the local Garda Station and will become operational in the coming weeks,” said Mr. McCarthy.
Teams in the golf classic will consist of three golfers competing in the champagne scramble competition at a cost of €180 per team. This also includes refreshments before the start of the game and a meal afterwards as well as a goody bag and the chance to win a top of the range Ford car at a par three feature hole.
