UPPERCHURCH DROMBANE ANNUAL XMAS CHARITY FUNDRAISER
The Upperchurch Drombane GAA annual Xmas charity fundraiser takes place this year on Sunday Dec 30th with the inaugural staging of the Upperchurch Drombane Point-to-Point – one church steeple to the other as per the original point to point race except this time without the equine assistance – It will be an 8km walk or road race from Upperchurch church to Drombane church. The walk starts at 1pm with the run beginning at 1:30pm. This year monies raised will go towards cost of new stage curtains for Upperchurch Hall. This is a facility that has been of great benefit to training of juvenile players for many years so we’re asking for as much support as possible. Adults €10. Kids Free. All support welcome. Will have return transport arranged for visitors but hoping that locals will make their own arrangements.
