Another prominent role for Douglas was that of producer of the famous ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’ which also garnered him an Academy Award for producer of 1975's Best Picture. Other notable roles played by Douglas include; Dan Gallagher in ‘Fatal Attraction’, Andrew Shepherd in ‘The American President’ and Nick Curran in ‘Basic Instinct’. Douglas will reprise his role as Gordon Gekko in this summer’s ‘Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps’. He is married to fellow actor, Catherine Zeta-Jones.

With just over 4 weeks to go to the tournament, the excitement is building and to date, 24,600 entrance caps have been sold with only 5,400 remaining. Spectators are urged to purchase their caps as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Spectators can choose from one of eight different coloured “two-day entrance caps” representing Ireland, Munster Rugby and each of the Munster counties. At a cost of €50 for both days, they can be purchased from the website on www.jpmcmanusproam.com or at selected retail outlets.

TThe aim of the JP McManus Invitational Pro-Am is to support mid-western charities and groups in their work with the underprivileged and disadvantaged. All proceeds are donated in their entirety towards the development of these services.
