The Phillip Courtney Memorial weekend is held every August bank holiday at Blackhill GFC in Castleblaney, Co Monaghan.

The tournament has been running for six years and has raised €30,000 for various local charities. Phillip Courtney was a former chairman of Blackhill football club who died suddenly in 2004. He was very active in the club both on the field and off and his death was a huge loss, not only to his wife Bernie and children, Stevan, Edel and Karen, but also to the greater Blackhill community.

This year, Brainwave was very grateful to have been chosen as the beneficiary charity for the tournament, which raised a a fantastic €4,408 for our work. The funds will be used to organise a special conference for young adults in the North East area.

The four teams who took part in the tournament this year were Blackhill, Cremartin, Doohamlet and Drumhowan. There was a great turnout each night with Doohamlet being crowned the winners. 

Bernie would like to thank everybody who took part and helped out in any way to make the tournament a great success and to everybody for their kind donations.

Thank you to Bernie, the Murphy family and all the organisers, sponsors and supporters for raising such a fantastic amount for Brainwave.
