Ballymahon Friends of Crumlin launched their 2019 fundraising campaign in Kiernan’s Bar.

This is the 4th year of the fundraiser, which has firmly become an annual event in Ballymahon.

The group are already busy selling tickets for the monster draw, with the price set at €5 each or 3 for €10 and some fantastic prizes on offer.

The annual crawl/walk/run will take place on Saturday, June 8, with the draw being held on the same night.

Chairperson Paul Kelly said, “There are a lot of fundraisers held in the area for various worthy causes but people always dig deep when it's fundraising for sick children.

“The support has been wonderful from the outset and as a result we’ve handed over almost €50,000 to CMRF over the past 3 years.”
