Today: The Annual Fancy Dress Stretcher Race

The Bush Bar hosts the Annual Charity Stretcher Race this June 3rd. It is in aid of the Ian O’Connell Trust Fund and the Fight For Fionn.

Fionn Barry has spent most of his short life suffering and in hospital yet despite this he is still fighting for answers. He was diagnosed at 6 months with infantile spasms which has evolved into a seriously debilitating and Life limiting illness and needs 24 hour care.

16-year-old Ian O’Connell fell from his bike in Killarney National Park, sustaining damage to his neck and spine. The popular young sportsman is undergoing occupational therapy and physiotherapy at the rehabilitation centre in Dún Laoghaire.  A trust set up to help a Killarney teenager who sustained a life-changing injury last August. 

Teams of 5 €50 . All you need is a halfway decent stretcher, a good pint drinker with a strong stomach, 4 people to carry them and some sort of fancy dress outfit😉😉

This is a fantastic day and it’s always a great success 👏👏

So if u would like to put a team in get in touch. Would you also please share with your friends. 😁😁
We would really appreciate your support.
