Thank You

Donal Deady and Special Olympics Ireland would like to thank Bruree GAA and Rockhill Rovers for donating the proceeds of a recent lotto draw towards cost of Donal’s travel expenses as a coach to this year’s summer games in Athens. Thanks to everyone who sold lotto tickets, especially those who made a special effort to sell extra tickets. The total donated was €1,500.
Donal has another fundraising venture this weekend and looks forward to your support. He has organised a bag packing day at Supervalu, Charleville, for this Saturday, March 19th. Your generosity would be greatly appreciated as Donal prepares to travel to Greece as a golf coach with the Irish Special Olympics team.
