Superb Cheque Presentations at The Pub in Carriganima

Sincere congratulations to Jimmy Murphy and his totally dedicated Team on another supremely successful fundraising Run/Walk/Jog event at Carriganima some weeks ago.  On Saturday, 2nd Nov. 2019 at The Pub two most impressive cheques (€1,250.00 each) were presented to Representatives of Macroom & Millstreet Community Hospitals – in the presence of an enthusiastic audience, of Scottish Singer supreme – Johnny Bremner – and following Katie Taylor’s World Boxing Win.   Addressing the assembly of people we listened to Carriganima’s Newly Appointed Priest – Fr. Joe Rohan (a native of Midleton) who referred to his admiration for the great work for which Carriganima is famous.   Here we share the overall picture of both cheques being presented.  More images to follow later.  Tap on the picture to enlarge.  (S.R.)
