Since joining the golf team at Dromoland 5 years ago, a lot of attempts have been made to get Triona to pick up a club and play but the day is yet to come. While she doesn’t play golf, she has a love for the sport and can definitely talk a good game! As Golf Administrator for the club, she runs all society and corporate bookings. If you have any questions about a group booking, big or small, pop her an email or give her a call and she would be delighted to go through all your options.

A native of Ennis, Paul joined the team in 2002 and oversaw the transformation of the golf course into the stunning parkland venue that now boasts one of the finest challenges of golf in Ireland. Having originally worked as a greenkeeper at the nearby Woodstock Golf & Country Club he went on to acquire a degree in Turfgrass Science and Golf Course Management at the University of Central Lancashire. This led to some time working abroad in golf courses in Spain and the US before returning home to Clare and the beautiful Dromoland Castle. “It’s a privilege to enter the gates here every morning and work at such a majestic golf course”, Paul says, as he strives to make Dromoland the very best it can be.
