Philanthropy in Ireland

Fundraising Ireland has highlighted an interesting article posted recently by the Irish Times that examines the fact, that although Irish people are quite generous in giving to charities, the corporate world in Ireland is very slow to do so, trailing many other countries.

Congratulations to Warren de Courcy!

We would like to congratulate Warren de Courcy for being the first person to complete The First Tee online Assistant Coach Training course. He is the first person in Ireland to do so. We thank him and all our volunteers for their ongoing support.
