Rory McElroy & our Juniors at the Irish Open in Baltry


Fergus, Kyle, Kate, Julie, Ciara and I, along with a few CBC Monkstown boys got to travel to Baltray for the Pro-Am day of this year’s Irish Open on Wednesday 13th May.  It was a great opportunity to meet and take photos of Rory McIlroy, the most exciting young golfer in the world today.

We arrived by bus at Baltray and got to see a lot of the top players practising. We were there to meet Rory.  We had our photos taken with him and we asked him a few questions.  He was very nice and friendly.  I took five photos of him on my phone.  He gave each of us a golf ball with his autograph on it.

There was a great atmosphere there and we saw Padraig Harrington, Graeme McDowell and Cabrera.

I have put my golf ball safely away as one day Rory could be as big as Tiger Woods!

A big THANK YOU to Johnny O’Shea for organising it all and giving us a great opportunity to meet Rory.
