Dubai Duty Free Irish Open In Photos – Bluebird Care In Action

This week we are at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open providing event mobility services from Stand 19, opposite the Medical Centre.

Also this week Director of Bluebird Care Dublin North, Paul O’Reilly took to the golf course to test his on-course skills. Paul did pretty well. He had two birdies in the round, one more than his Pro counter-part Marcel Siem, and a lot more than Rory had yesterday. We think that his co-Director and caddy Ken Shannon could have had something to do with his success.

Have a look at their day in photos below.
