Pheasant Matchmaking And Zambian Golf!
Sometimes boy meets girl, they like the look of each other, and they have a baby. The baby then grows up and looks for a partner to start the next generation - and the cycle continues…
But sometimes, it’s not that straightforward. Sometimes, the boy or girl needs a helping hand to ‘hook up’
But there is no Lisdoonvarna for pheasants, so Derek Mulrooney has taken it upon himself to play ‘Matchmaker’ to introduce some wives to suitable Pheasant husbands!
He is the ‘Honorary Wildlife Conservator’ at Druids Glen Resort in Wicklow.
And we’ve spoken to him in the past about his Kingfisher project at Druids Glen but today he is here to talk about Pheasant Matchmaking, Bachelor Mute Swans, Curious Antelopes and Zambian Golf!
Derek doesn't want donations of second-hand golf equipment, but he is looking for someone to sponsor a trip and six sets of new golfclubs for six Zambian boys that they are hoping to bring to Ireland this summer. They will base them and a chaperone in Delgany and bring them to the Golf Union of Ireland Academy in Carton House. This will be done in association with the Zambian Golf Federation.
