Despite very challenging inclement weather conditions on Sunday there was a truly magnificent response to the fundraising “Fight for Sight” Truck Run on Sunday, 31st Oct. 2021 in aid of Alannah and Ellie when some 200 Trucks (it is estimated) participated in the very praiseworthy event. Here we share some 21 images from the occasion as the many very impressive vehicles were about to leave the starting point at Millstreet’s Green Glens.

Road-signs for a charity truck event taking place on Sunday 31st October in the Green Glens Arena, were erected around the locality during the week. One of these signs has gone missing! It was placed at the Millstreet Junction by the Sandpit Bar on Tuesday evening and had been removed by 5pm Wednesday. We contacted the County Council and they had not removed the sign. We would appreciate if anyone with information could contact 087 2030518 or better again, if whoever has removed it, would be kind enough to return it. It is after all, a charity event for two sick little girls.
Following the recent Truck Run for the ICRR Air Ambulance Helicopter a staggering Sum of €15,312.57 was presented to ICRR last Monday over at their base in Rathcoole.
