Stars Erin McGregor, James Kavanagh, Niamh Cullen and Eoghan McDermott took part in a special polo shoot to promote the event.

Founder Julian Benson commented on the announcement: “We are honoured to be chosen as charity partner for this year’s International Ladies Polo Day. I’ve experienced first-hand the difficulties faced by people who battle Cystic Fibrosis and I’m determined to do what I can to help provide some comfort and support when it is most needed.

“Our BUILD Campaign and events like this provide much-needed funds and bring us closer to achieving our goals. We’re delighted to receive the support of such an iconic event.”

The polo will see national, international players and celebrities take part in matches throughout the day.
