Other exciting lots include a pair of boxing gloves signed by Henry Cooper, jodhpurs signed by Ireland’s top jockeys, a signed picture a armband by Darren Clarke and rugby and soccer shirts. The auction will form part of the Prize Giving Party for the golf competition which takes place 10am-4pm on Friday 30th at Rathbane.
