Munster Rugby players and coaches have once again been busy during the recent weeks and months, as they reached out to give some much-needed help to the various charities around the province and country.
The grateful recipients included St Munchin's Community Centre, CUAN House Cancer Support and Autism in Ireland.
The Munster team of 1978 who took part in a recent Guinness advert were represented by Geraldine Tucker, wife of Colm Tucker, who was a member of the team. She gave a cheque to Linda Ledger of St Munchin's Community Centre.
Munster flanker Dave O'Callaghan was in attendance at the CUAN House Cancer Support Spinathon in September, where over €4,000 was raised for the Youghal-based charity.
CUAN House Cancer Support is a voluntary organisation that was established to help cancer sufferers and their families. They have a holistic centre which provides emotional support and practical help.
Meanwhile Munster once again donated match tickets in support of the Masquerade Ball for Autism. That took place last Saturday at Carrigaline Court Hotel.
Munster Rugby also donated tickets to Kayla's 3rd Annual Halloween Ball in Kilmurray Lodge in aid of My Canine Companion, and Limerick Neonatal Unit Fund.
Child Syrian Refugee Crisis, Clare Crusaders, Garry McEvoy's Cycle for Crumlin and the Butterfly Ball in aid of the Irish Cancer Society were also helped out by the province recently.
