I would sincerely like to express my thanks to the Dance Committee and people of Gowna who supported me in my recent fundraiser. A special thanks to all those who bought tickets and supported the dance which raised the sum of 1800 euro especially coming so soon after the wonderful way we were looked after during our cycle against suicide around Ireland by providing accommodation and meals. Once again a sincere thank you. Brid McEvoy.
