Thunder Rolls Garth Brook’s Charity night

Just to let everyone know that the final amount raised on the night of the Thunder Rolls Garth Brook’s Charity Concert was €4701.38. Many thanks to everyone for your support. Pat Doonan, musicians and backing singers gave a wonderful concert and entertained the large crowd who sang along and danced the night away. Special guests on the night were Evening Star.

The money raised will be divided evenly between the two charities, Cancer Research Ireland and Cystic Fibrosis Ireland (Cavan branch), both very deserving causes. Also thanks to all who helped out in any way!

Congratulations to Lynch’s newsagent in neighbouring town of Arva, Co Cavan, who is obviously doing something right, because ice-cream lovers are coming from miles around, attracted by the 99s ice cream on offer. The shop clearly has a lot of fans who use social media as Lynch’s is currently No 1 on the 99 Finder apps leaderboard. Well done!
