Pearse Division 2014 Irish Classic Golf Tournament

At the Jameson Table – First Liar Never Wins!


On a beautiful fall day, October 20th, at Kansas City’s Hillcrest Golf Course, the Ancient Order of Hibernians Pearse Division #1 KCMO held its annual Irish Classic Golf Tournament. In partnership with the Kansas City Irish Center and Museum the division hosted teams from throughout Kansas City in a fundraiser for the charities it supports.

A highlight of the round of golf is a stop at the Jameson’s Table for relaxation and exaggerated and made up stories of golfing skills. This year (from left in front) John McEvoy, Steve Page (back to camera) and Bill Quinn hosted the table which annually is a most profitable undertaking. In the picture along with two participating golfers is the Pearse Division’s good friend, Denny Dennihan (fourth from the left) the president of the Kansas City Kansas Fr. Donnelly Division.

Pearse Division Vice President Lew Hendricks headed up the golf committee and the event grew in both numbers and profit for the third year in a row. The goal of the Division and Irish Center is to have this become the premier fall event for the Irish in Kansas City.
