St. Conlon’s Nursing Home
This week the Kilruane MacDonaghs senior hurling and intermediate camogie teams will complete their 5K-a-Day Fundraiser in aid of St. Conlon’s Nursing Home, Nenagh. By the weekend all the players on both panels will have run 5km. A few of the minor panel have also got in on the act. This venture is raising vital funds for this fantastic facility and its dedicated frontline healthcare who are providing a tremendous service to the people of North Tipperary in these challenging times.
The players had an initial target of €3,000 but thanks to the generosity of people both inside and outside the parish €7,653 has already been raised. Thanks to everybody who has donated to this very worthy cause. You can use the following link to donate www.gofundme.com/f/kilruane5kaday
All our facilities remain closed. Kilruane MacDonaghs would like to thank all our members and supporters for their co-operation, patience and understanding during this difficult time. Young and old are asked to abide by the guidelines issued by both the Government and the HSE.
The club would like to extend sympathy to the following: the Hill family, Whitstone, Borrisokane on the death of Alice Hill; Dan Kennedy and family, Roscrea on the death of Peggy Kennedy; the Hogan family, Ballinderry on the death of Monnie Hogan; the O’Meara family, Toomevara on the death of Matt O’Meara; and the Guest family, Borrisokane on the death of Martin Guest.
