LAP OF IRELAND FUNDRAISER
A massive thanks to all who took part and donated to our Lap Of Ireland fundraiser last week to raise funds for our new walkway around the GAA field in Drombane and a new astroturf area. Our aim was to cover a distance of 2,150km over 2 days and so complete a lap of Ireland. The response was fantastic and the eventual total reached was almost 3,500km. Pictures submitted can be seen on our facebook page.
The total amount of money raised between our gofundme page & donations dropped to Ryans shop & Drombane Creamery came to a staggering €12,150. Thanks again to everyone for their generosity.
