Once again our annual Lourdes invalid fundraiser was a great success with a total of 5125 euro raised.Many thanks to everyone involved both on the day of the static cycle and the actual cycle to Westport and the climb of Croagh Patrick. Since the commencement of this fundraiser in 2010 we have raised in excess of twenty one thousand euro and this has been made possible by your generosity and support. All of this money has gone directly to helping take people to Lourdes and for this our committee are very grateful and we look forward to your continued support in 2014.
