About Our Memorial Fund

The Eithne and Paddy Memorial Fund, was set up by the well-known hotelier John Fitzpatrick in memory of his late parents, Eithne and Paddy. The Memorial Fund works to raise funds in support of a diverse group of worthy organizations across the island of Ireland that focus on a range of much needed initiatives including expanding educational opportunities, helping families and children affected by serious illnesses, delivering social services to the elderly and fostering peace and understanding between people in troubled areas.

The Fund was established by John Fitzpatrick in 1994
The annual golf outing is held at Sleepy Hollow Country Club, NY
To date the Fund has raised over $3.5 million dollars
The Fund supports charities in both Ireland, north and south and The U.S.
Our next fundraising event is on May 15th, 2017
John is grateful to all his supporters and friends who helped grow the Fund
