A great day at the Niall Horan Golf Classic in aid of Irish Autism Action and T.E.A.M

Posted Sep 14 2012 8:32am
Clive was at the Niall Horan Golf Classic in aid of Irish Autism Action and T.E.A.M. (Temporary Emergency Accommodation Mullingar) yesterday at Mullingar Golf Club...

It was a fantastic day - organised to raise money for two very deserving charities - autism and the homeless. Plenty of celebrities lended their support to the day including Keith Duffy, Ken Doherty and One Direction's Niall Horan, who celebrated his 19th birthday by playing golf and helping IAA and TEAM.

He here is with Glenda Gilson, TV presenter and Keith Duffy, Boyzone member and patron of Irish Autism Action.  Sorcha spent the day with Clive as a special treat as there was a very special golfer there that she wanted to see ....

Sorcha is fantastic with Murray - it's not always easy having a sibling with autism - so she was allowed the day off school to go to the golf course and she arrived at the 1st tee just in time to see One Direction's Niall Horan tee with his fellow players.  She was thrilled!!

But really the person she wanted a photograph with was .....

You guessed it, Niall!!

The prize giving and auction was great fun!
Keith Duffy kept everyone amused with his comments - especially about the long drive prize!

He reluctantly handed it over to the winner!  He had thought he had won it himself!!!

Niall then helped out at the auction ....

A pair of his signed boxer shorts sold for over €200!

A signed Darren Clarke golf bag went for €550!

Biggest earner of the night was a signed Rory McIlroy t-shirt that made over €1,000!
But the auction was only a small part of the overall day and more than €50,000 was raised yesterday in aid of Irish Autism Action and T.E.A.M.

Just before Niall left to celebrate his party at a big fundraising party at the Mullingar Park Hotel - Sorcha got the chance to get another photo with him ...

and Clive wanted to make sure he was part of the photo too .....

It was a great day in aid of Irish Autism Action and T.E.A.M and Sorcha was thrilled to be able to be part of the day and get to meet Niall Horan.  Murray was at school but happy to know that Clive was there -

He loved all the photos last night when we came home and wanted to tell the boys in school today who Sorcha met so hopefully all these photos will help prompt him in class today!
