On May 17th Offaly celebrated the remarkable achievement of Clara man Shane Lowry. This remarkable amateur golfer surprised everybody by winning the 3 Irish Open Golf Championship, despite appalling weather conditions and strong professional competition.

An Offaly Hero

The Offaly Dyslexia Group is proud to congratulate Shane on his success and wishes him all the best for the future.

We would also like to thank Donal Molloy, owner of Shane’s home club, the now famous Esker Hills Golf Club for his extraordinary generosity in supporting our fund raising efforts.

This is not the only link with fame for The Offaly Dyslexia Group, one of our young members is not only a fan, but hails from Ballykilmurray and actually knows this talented young golfer!

Just in case you didn’t know Ballykilmurray is where all the action takes place…
