Friendship built on strong foundations thumbnail

FORMER world number one and four time major champion Rory McIlroy says he is 'proud' to link up with the Harry Gregg Foundation as part of next week's Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.
The Holywood golfer has just announced that the former Man Utd and NI goalkeeper's charity will benefit through an involvement with his own Rory Foundation which hosts the Rolex event at Portstewart Golf Club.
The Harry Gregg Foundation was set up in 2015 and seeks to promote positive changes among young people through participation in sport and other health and lifestyle activities.
“I first met Harry Gregg at a game in Windsor Park last year and we really hit it off," said Rory.
“Being a big football fan and a Manchester United supporter we had a great chat that night so to get involved with Harry's Foundation was really a pretty obvious choice.
“Sport was my life growing up and remains so today and I'm proud to be getting involved with a local charity helping young people get into sport.
