Brrrr-ave souls to sleep out for Homeless Aid

IT'S THAT time of the year again when twelve hardy souls will brave sub-zero temperatures to raise muchneeded funds for Drogheda Homeless Aid.

This year the sleepout will take place from 12 noon next Friday, December 14, to 12 noon on Saturday December, 15 on West St., Drogheda, with volunteers, including local councillors, sleeping outside for a full 24 hours to help raise money for the local facility.

This is the third year in a row that local public representatives will be taking part, and this year, they will also be joined by staff from IFS/Statestreet (one of the main sponsors), and members of O'Raghallaighs GFC taking part.

Those involved will be Mayor Paul Bell, Cllrs. Ken O Heiligh, Kevin Callan, Richie Culhane, Paddy McQuillan, Frank Gallagher, Frank Godfrey, John Martin, Gavin McMahon, Deirdre McHugh, Suzanne Markey and Cormac Bohan.
