Philanthropic Friends

A Big Thank You To Our Philanthropic Friends

We want to express our deepest gratitude to Pat Boland and fellow Officers of the County Clare Golf Outing Benefit Fund, Inc., of which Pat is President, for their recent donation of Eight Thousand Dollars (€6,896.55) to the West Clare Cancer Centre here in Kilkee. Pat, who resides in Yonkers, New York, is, himself, a native of Kilkee, Co. Clare. The Charity is in its twentieth year and the two other beneficiaries of this year’s fundraiser, held on July 30th 2015, were St. Clare’s School in Ennis, Co. Clare and the YWCA White Plains Special Needs Programs in New York. This is a phenomenal achievement and a marvellous reflection of everybody involved.

Sincere thanks to you all, our “every-day hereos”.

Unfortunately, it has come to our attention that unauthorised, fraudulent sponsorship cards are in circulation in the Adare area, purporting to raise funds for the West Clare Mini Marathon Cancer Centre. The Gardaí in Newcastle West have been informed and are investigating the matter. The West Clare Mini Marathon is held on the last Sunday in January, annually. We would ask people to please be vigilant and should they be approached for sponsorship, to contact the Gardai. We would ask our friends and followers to please share this information.
