Help us create the Hunt Museum in the Garden by playing in our Pre Qualifier Competition for the JP McManus Pro-Am.  The event takes place in Limerick Golf Club on Thursday 12th of September, 2019. Play in fours with entry fee €100 per person. The fee includes a buffet lunch and a pro-am entrance cap. Please note that tee times are on a first come basis. Alternatively if you cannot participate in the golf you can sponsor a tee for €100.

The purpose of this fund raising event is to avail of technologies of 3D scanning and 3D printing, the artefacts within the museum, “hidden” in the collection cases, will be made large through replication and brought into Garden of the Hunt Museum for all ages for play and enjoyment. Also the barriers (wrought iron fences) between the public and the museum will be removed and upcycled to garden furniture; a nationwide competition to design the garden with the community will be launched; the museum will be made safer with better flood defenses and our heritage will become accessible, as we take the museum outside of its walls.

The garden will be maintained by local community and volunteers from Limerick Mental Health Association who, together with professionals, will design an open garden on the banks of the Shannon,  showing off the cultural treasures of museum and providing a communal green space for everyone.

Your support is welcome to support these initiatives so we hope you will gather your friends and colleagues to take part in what promises to be a very enjoyable day!
