Well done girls and to all who helped out in anyway in making this another very successful fundraiser! Congratulations to all those who braved the elements in aid of this worthy cause, and even local County Councillor Paddy O’Rourke, Cathaoirleach Leitrim County Council, did not disappear after the photo-shoot, he waited and took the plunge, complete with his Chain of Office and green dickie bow! A big thank you to all who attended and supported this event!
