The prestigious tournament brings together the best amateur golfers from across Europe to compete against one another. The Championship is organized by the European Golf Association and has was first held in 1959.  Killarney previously hosted the event in 1975 when a Scotland defeated Italy on a score of 4 ½ to 2 ½.

The tournament is played over several days and features both team and individual competitions. Teams are made up of six players, with the best five scores from each team counting towards the overall team score. The team with the lowest score at the end of the tournament is crowned Champions.

The Championship is a great opportunity for young golfers to showcase their skills and gain valuable experience playing against some of the best amateur players in Europe. It also serves as a steppingstone for many players who go on to have successful professional careers.  Some previous winners of note being Colin Montgomerie , Sergio Garcia ,Tommy Fleetwood and Jon Rahm. Ireland have won the event on 6 occasions with superstars Shane Lowry and Rory McIlroy both being part of winning teams.
