Killeen Castle: Home Of The Solheim Cup


Druids Glen, the luxury golf resort where former Anglo Irish Bank boss Sean Fitzpatrick met Irish prime minister Brian Cowen for a round in July 2008 as the bank teetered on the brink of collapse, used to charge a joining fee of €45,000 on top of annual membership fees.

Public revelations about the meeting contributed to Cowen’s resignation as leader of Fianna Fail in January this year, precipitating a general election.

“We have had to adjust our rates. Ireland probably was over-priced during the boom,” says Richard Collins, chief executive at Druids Glenn.
