'Shotgun Wedding' event raises cash for the ICS

A fundraiser organised by CityNorth Hotel and Courtlough Shooting and Outdoor Adventure has raised a tidy sum for the Irish Cancer Society.

The so-called 'Shotgun Wedding' was organised in conjunction with Today FM's 'Dare to Care' and 'Wedding Dress Wednesday' campaign.

The guys and girls of CityNorth Hotel and Courtlough Shooting & Outdoor Adventure got their wedding dresses and tuxedos out and began their morning in Courtlough to shoot some clays and brave the zipline!

The red carpet was rolled out, Today FM were on the scene and there was plenty of fun had by all.

Afterwards, everyone was invited back to the CityNorth Hotel for the Shotgun Wedding Reception and were treated to hot finger food, afternoon tea and a glass of bubbly for their brave efforts!

So far, €1,230 has been raised which has left the original target of €500 far behind. The link to donate can be found on and will remain open until Friday to try and break the €2,000 mark.

CityNorth Hotel and Courtlough Shooting & Outdoor Adventure would like to thank everyone who got involved today and to everyone who has donated so far to this very worthy cause.
