Connolly Motor Group is delighted to announce our continued partnership with County Sligo Golf Club, Rosses Point for the West of Ireland Championship in the event’s 100th Year.

This is a prestigious and renowned golf event on Golf Ireland’s tournament calendar and is conducted jointly by County Sligo Golf Club and Golf Ireland. It has previously been won by major winners Rory Mcllroy, Padraig Harrington, and Shane Lowry, and is the traditional curtain raiser for elite amateur golf in Ireland.

Speaking at the launch of the Connolly’s Audi West of Ireland Championship in Co. Sligo Golf Club, General Manager for Audi Sligo Marcus Jackson said, ‘The main reason we are sponsoring the West of Ireland Championship is that it’s a fantastic competition and it is right on our doorstep here in the West of Ireland.’

‘We have a huge customer base in the area and Connolly Motor Group, along with Audi are synonymous with golf so it is very close to our hearts, and we’re proud to be involved.’

Connolly Motor Group is a family-owned business established in 1939 with 14 locations across Sligo, Mayo, Galway, and Donegal.

The Connolly’s Audi West of Ireland Championship 2023 event takes place this Easter weekend. The event will boast a new format this year with the field playing three rounds of stroke-playing qualifying on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, with the leading 16 players then facing off in match play.
