NRH Fundraiser The recent fundraiser in aid of the National Rehabilitation Hospital, Dun Laoghaire was an outstanding success - total amount raised came to euro 4,243. Edel Lambe, fundraising manager with the NRH, paid a visit to the area last weekend and was very thankful to all who subscribed so generously to this very worthy cause and she said this money goes to the direct benefit of the patients in the NRH. Having been a patient there myself recently and seeing at first hand the very good use that all money raised goes to, so I was only too delighted to be part of this great fundraising effort. Kevin and Teresa would once again like to thank everyone for their wonderful support.
The death took place last week of Paddy Fox, Annaduff, father of Gortletteragh club chairman, Colum Fox. Paddy was a true gentleman and was always such a positive person to meet. He had a great love of the GAA, a love which he handed on to his family. As a mark of respect on Paddy’s passing, the Gortletteragh and Annaduff GAA clubs formed a guard of honour at his removal on Friday night last at St Mary’s Church, Annaduff. We tender sympathy with his wife Ena, sons Donal and Colum, daughters Noelin, Eithne and Eimear, sisters Frances and Attracta, sons in law, daughters in law, grandchildren, relatives and friends. Solas na bhFlaitheas air.
Well done to Leitrim, who did really well on Sunday last in Miltown Malbay to secure a share of the spoils with Clare in the National League. When Two Mile House of Kildare won the All Ireland Junior club final yesterday in Croke Park, the team was captained by Niall Browne, son of Michael Browne, formerly of Cloonee Townland who migrated with his family to Kildare back in the 1950s. Congratulations to Niall and his teammates on their success.
