4.16pm 27th June 2022 - Sponsorship & Events

Financial services company KPMG is to become the title sponsor of the Women’s Irish Open for the next three years. The tournament, which is returning to the Ladies European Tour schedule following a 10-year absence, will take place at Dromoland Castle from September 22-25, 2022.

Today’s announcement is an extension of KPMG’s ongoing commitment to the development, advancement and empowerment of women’s sport in Ireland, having previously supported the 20×20 campaign and its ongoing sponsorship of Irish golfer Leona Maguire, Irish jockey Rachael Blackmore and the Dublin Ladies Gaelic football team.

KPMG has a long heritage in the game of golf, both in Ireland and abroad, having been title sponsor of the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship since 2015, one of five majors in the women’s golf which took place last week in Maryland.

The tournament had a total purse of $9 million, a 300% increase on the total purse prior to KPMG’s sponsorship of the event, with the winner receiving $1.35 million. In Ireland, KPMG is also the title sponsor of the KPMG Irish Kids Golf Tour, which is open to girls and boys aged 6 to 13 years old and features some of the best young golfers in Ireland.

Declan Keane, KPMG Chief Operating Officer, said: “KPMG is thrilled to announce that it will be the title sponsor of the Women’s Irish Open ahead its historic return to the LET schedule in September. We are incredibly proud of our history in supporting both the game of golf, as well as women’s sport in Ireland, and with today’s announcement we look forward to building our relationship with both over the coming years.

As a firm, we are committed to investing in young talented people in Ireland and it is my hope that the KPMG Women’s Irish Open will inspire the next generation Irish golfers to compete at the highest level of the game.”
