Duagh ensuring Fr Pat Moore's legacy with a great donation to cancer charity
Fr Pat Moore's memory was very much to the fore of a charitable event in the late cleric's beloved parish of Duagh on Friday night as a donation of more than €1,000 was made to a vital health cause in his memory.
The €1,100 was the proceeds of the recent and massive Bringing Back the Showbands concert held in the Duagh Sport and Leisure Complex as a fundraiser to support their own operations as well as the Kerry Cork Health Link Bus - a lifeline of a service for the many Kerry people travelling to Cork for regular treatment.
Chairperson Anne Scanlon said the group was delighted to present the funds in memory of Fr Moore: "On behalf of the committee I wish to thank all those who made the concert such an incredible success with support that was very much appreciated. We will make this an annual event and continue our partnership with the Kerry cancer support group and in doing so keep the spirit of Fr Pat alive in the hearts of all the people of the parish and all North Kerry."
