TIGS Shine with Shannon Airport in Tullamore

2nd June 2018 - 2:50pm

The Travel Industry Golf Society held a highly successful outing at Tullamore Golf Course on Thursday. In blazing sunshine and a welter of tanned and muscular bodies (and that was only the ladies), the cream of Ireland’s travel agents took to the fairways. To boost energy levels, Declan Power and Isabel Harrison from Shannon Airport hosted breakfast in the clubhouse in Tullamore and doled out goody bags to all.


The scene was set for a scorching round when players headed off on buggies, seriously intent on doing the Championship course justice. Repairing afterwards to the Bridge House Hotel in the town centre, dinner was served and winners announced. Great food, civil service (d’ya get it?) and flowing wine are the hallmarks of all TIGS outings and Tullamore was no exception. Secretary Jim Tobin (FCm Travel) was in sparkling form telling jokes (although many suspected they were plagiarised from Peter O’Hanlon (Travelfinders), but Peter took it well (and plied him with compliments!) and Captain Dave Conlon (Travelport) kept the proceedings rolling along. Shannon Airport was our generous sponsor on the day and prizes were magnificent (well done Declan and Isabel). All in all, it was an ‘Offaly’ good outing. Thanks to Dave and Committee and a shout out to travel agents for new membership and continued support of TIGS.
