Two fundraisers held for Marymound Hospice

TWO fundraisers in aid of Marymount Hospice were held in Cill na Martra during the Christmas holidays.

On Saturday night last, Regina Donnelly from Marymount was presented with the proceeds of both events at An Chrois. The McSuibhne Challenge was a novelty fun race held in Páirc Uí Chuana on Lá le Stiofán. This event raised €2,100 and the victor, Brendan presented Regina Donnelly with a cheque for this amount. The second fundraiser was a Dart Tournament held at An Chrois on December 28.

This was the third tournament and it was organised by Damien Burns and Michael Dineen with tremendous support from the local community. The two organisers along with Donal Noonan presented a cheque for a whopping €7,500 to Regina. The late Seamus Scriven's family made a substantial private donation to Regina on the same night.

Everyone who helped in any way in the organising and carrying out of these two events deserve lots of credit and thanks. Míle buiochas.
