SEAT To Star At Ladies Irish Open

Elizabeth O’Gorman, Marketing Manager for SEAT Ireland and Roddy Carr, Tournament Director

SEAT Ireland will offer the prize of a brand new SEAT Leon to any of the competitors who can sink the elusive hole-in-one at the forthcoming Ladies Irish Open, which is being held at the beautiful backdrop of Killeen Castle, Co. Meath from the 3rd – 5th August. Killeen Castle hosts a magnificent Jack Nicklaus Signature Course set over 350 acres among superb natural woodlands.

Not only will SEAT be offering this incredible prize, but they will also be running a test drive programme from the event itself, offering any of the 30,000 expected visitors the opportunity to drive one of six models, including the new Ibiza and the all-new SEAT Mii. This will be the first time that the Irish public will get a chance to drive the all-new Mii, coinciding with its Irish launch that week. The SEAT Mii is a stylish new city-car which boasts outstanding safety features and the innovative new SEAT Touch system, an in-car navigation, phone and multimedia interface, which will be free on the car for a limited period.

Other cars available on the day will include the recently-launched SEAT Ibiza and the Leon. There will also be displays of the SEAT Alhambra and Ibiza ST. Commenting on the announcement of SEAT Ireland as official car sponsor for the event, Elizabeth O’Gorman, Marketing Manager for SEAT Ireland said “We are delighted to be involved in what promises to be a great event over the August Bank Holiday weekend. Not only does it mean that visitors to the competition can get to drive some of our latest offerings, but there is of course the added lure of a brand new SEAT Leon to one of the competitors, should they be lucky or skillful enough to be able to land a hole-in-one!”
