Mushera climb boost for Suicide Aware



CLOSE on 150 volunteers made it to the summit of Mushera Mountain on Christmas Day to maintain the traditional staging.

Charities benefit from the popular hosting by Aubane Social Club, this year's event assisting Suicide Aware (Lets Talk).

The Aubane event is eagerly looked forward to on each December 25 and organisers were pleased that, bar one or two showers, the weather again obliged.

Co-ordinator Mary Buckley spoke of the huge turn out for the staging and though the underfoot conditions were wet and slippery, it failed to deter willing participants.

"All credit to the participants foe coming out in force from North and Mid Cork to support a most deserving cause", she said.
