Statement By Shannon Group CEO
Shannon Group CEO Mary Considine said, "We are delighted to become an official partner of the KPMG Women's Irish Open, which is being held on our doorstep, at the acclaimed Dromoland Castle, providing an opportunity to highlight the fantastic golfing talent we have here in this country and promote Shannon Airport to a world-wide TV audience.
"This event will bring a welcome boost to tourism in the region, along with significant Irish and international media coverage. We look forward to welcoming players and golf enthusiasts to the airport. This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase the calibre of golf courses here to overseas visitors and put Ireland top of mind as a premiere golfing destination."
The announcement follows another golfing event for the region after over 30 private jets carrying some of the world's golfers landed at Shannon Airport to participate in the JP McManus Pro-Am in Adare Manor last month.
To celebrate Shannon Airport's official partnership with the KPMG Women's Irish Open, the airport will be launching a ticket giveaway for the tournament on the official Shannon Airport social media channels.
