Who was Ria Kenny?

Ria was renowned for her charitable works. For over 20 years, she rose at 6.30 a.m. to drive children by special bus from all over the city to the Cerebral Palsy Clinic in Sandymount.  

Ria gave generously of her talents in promoting and developing the game of golf, especially girls golf.   In her honour the Ria Kenny Juniors ILGU Eastern District competition is played annually in Elm Park.​

Ria was a giant both in her magnetic personality and her selflessness. Everybody she came in contact with warmed to her as much for her gaiety and extrovert nature as for her administrative skill. 

A legend in her own lifetime.
