The Rotary Club of Bandon was established in 1983 and meets weekly in the Munster Arms Hotel in the centre of the town.
We give our time and talents to serve our local community and enjoy business as well as social networking opportunities, whilst giving something back to those less fortunate.
Our projects that benefit the local community include our annual Golf Am-Am which has been run in conjunction with MSD Brinny for nearly 30 years and has raised over â‚¬250,000 for local charities. We run an annual Tree of Remembrance at Christmas which has raised over â‚¬5,000 for local community care organisations since 2012. We also run a breakfast morning on Daffodil day which allows us to donate over â‚¬3,000 annually to the Irish Cancer Society.
Our youth programmes include an all-Ireland Youth Leadership competition where the prize is a week-long trip to Stormont, the Dail and the European Parliament. Rotary's Youth Exchange enables young people from abroad and Ireland to spend time in each other's homes during the summer holidays.
We meet for lunch every Tuesday (except for after Bank Holidays) and have regular speakers on a wide range of topics.
