A successful weekend

2512122163a8121707400l

We had a busy weekend. The local Ramor Inn Golf Society had very kindly decided to dedicate its annual fundraising effort this year to CRY Ireland, in memory of Sean.

Susanna arrived home from France on Friday; we were joined later that day by Mary, Aoife and Liam. There was a quiz and raffle in the pub, and a ‘corner session’ afterwards with Caroline, Seán, Noel, myself and others banging out a few tunes and songs. It turned out to be a late night.

The golfers were up and out early on Saturday morning, at Virginia Golf Club. We stayed at home most of the day, and watched the rugby – a great game, notwithstanding Ireland’s narrow defeat to England.

Pauline, Liam and I went to the pub again that night, and met up with many of our friends. There was music and a raffle.

When all the money was counted, it turned out that €2,520 had been raised for CRY. We are delighted with this, and very grateful to all those who made it happen or helped in any way, and the local community who supported it so generously. It was a fitting tribute to Sean’s memory, and will go towards preventing the sudden death of other young people. Sean would be pleased and proud.

  1. Excellent. I can see you are all well pleased with the support. I like the idea of the “Corner Session”. Good to see you were exercising your voice and your guitar!

    • Thanks, pg. 🙂 We’re planning to increase the frequency of the corner sessions. We also have one or two new singers/musicians in the area, so that’s good. I hope you’re enjoying your own music.

  2. hey there – delighted to hear that the night went so well, Aoife and Mam reported that they had a great time – I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to be there – the next time I will be more on the ball!
