Can we say a massive thank you to Sinead Kearns and Leah Scanlan for their tremendous donation of €2,419.10 to the West Clare Cancer Centre on foot of their 100K Step Challenge held in April. This undertaking was made all the more difficult by having to remain within 2km of their respective homes, but they clocked up an amazing 100K steps EACH!!! despite the restrictions in place. Where there is a will, there is a way, as demonstrated by these two trail blazers! Thank you both humbly and sincerely!

JOHNNY DORIS – APRIL KEANE FAMILY CHALLENGE!

THE HUMAN SPIRIT IS STRONGER THAN ANYTHING THAT CAN HAPPEN TO IT – Johnny Doris is the emobodiment of this sentiment………………

May we express our sincere gratitude to Johnny Doris, Portarlington, Co. Laois, to Mags Keane, Carrigaholt, and the extended Keane family for the marvellous sum of €2,106.00 raised for the West Clare Cancer Centre on foot of Johnny’s ‘Keane Family Challenge’ which ran for the month of April. These people – the cultivators of altruism and the embodiment of compassion, covered a combined distance of over 5,000 kilometres, the approximate distance from Carrigaholt to San Fransisco, in their bid to raise funds for the West Clare Cancer Centre here in Kilkee. Phenomenal is too insufficient a word to describe their achievement – thanks is too small a word to proffer. Heroes all – we salute you!
