The NCBI Specsavers HolmPatrick is the longest running and largest charity mens’ golf tournament in Ireland, raising funds for the National Council for the Blind of Ireland (NCBI). Started in 1932, it is named after Edina Conyngham, Baronesss HolmPatrick, who donated the trophy to NCBI at its inauguration. The Baroness was a granddaughter of the Duke of Wellington.
