We thank Phil Sheehan and her dedicated Team of Volunteers for providing the very impressive update of the total very generous response to Millstreet’s Daffodil Day fundraising in aid of the Irish Cancer Society not just on the day itself (Friday, 24th March 2023) but also on the following days when further donations were received. The grand total is €7,313.88. Sincere thanks to All who contributed so very generously and to All who assisted in any way resulting in such a magnificent success. (S.R.)

An eight-year-old boy from Dublin who was due to make his First Holy Communion tomorrow is instead cycling a marathon close to his home for a charity close to his heart. This wonderfully uplifting and very inspiring story recently featured on the RTÉ Television News. He has already raised nearly €11,000 through his GoFundMe Page !! Update: The Fund has now reached an absolutely amazing €67,172.00 which includes a very generous contribution by Conor McGregor of €50,000.00! (S.R.)
Well done Eoin on behalf of all the coaches and boys from Kilmacud in Dublin….was just one of the many messages shared with Eoin.

Setting out from Millstreet GAA Community Hall at 10:30 this Saturday morning, 7th Dec. 2019 and coordinated by Millstreet Athletic Club this year’s Christmas Jumper Challenge Run in aid of Irish Cancer Society was a wonderful success with many enthusiastic and energetic runners (and walkers) participating. Our pictures capture the scene before setting off on the run. Tap on the image to enlarge. (S.R.)
The response to the fundraising Daffodil Day 2019 in aid of the Irish Cancer Society within the Millstreet area was hugely supportive with a most impressive total (as of now) of €4,100.00 lodged into the account of the Irish Cancer Society. We thank Phil Sheehan of the Coordinating Team for the update. This is a very encouraging result from today’s tremendous work by several Volunteers outside Herlihy’s Centra, Millstreet Post Office, Supervalu and Coleman’s Centra – especially when one considers that weather truly affected the overall national response and the ICS is not confident that the annual target of €4 million will be reached this year so nationwide the appeal continues. Here we feature some 10 images from today’s Daffodil Day in Millstreet Town. The Organising Team extends sincere thanks for such a superb response here in Millstreet. Click on the images to enlarge.

Having represented Dublin in the Final of Miss Ireland 2018 Maria created awareness for the Irish Cancer Society by running the Dublin Mini Marathon. After completing her Masters in UCC she joined Asset Management in Dublin. Thrilled to be selected as Miss Dublin she prepared to full capacity for the mini marathon:
“Being the current Miss Dublin in this years Miss Ireland was an amazing platform and being a finalist allowed me to be a major advocate of charities special to me. It gave me the wonderful opportunity to raise necessary funds for Irish Cancer Research . I am so grateful to all the wonderful people who donated so generously and as a result €5,623.00 was raised. A massive Thank You to all who did contribute and for helping me support such a deserving cause.”
This Saturday morning (13th Oct. 2018) at 10:30 a wonderfully enthusiastic group of walkers participated in the annual walk around the Glebe supporting the praiseworthy ongoing research into the Fight Against Breast Cancer. The very fit participants began their walk at Colemans returning there for much appreciated refreshments following the walk during which the rainy conditions did not dampen the uplifting spirit of the walkers. Here we share a selection of images from the community spirited event. Click on the pictures to enlarge. (S.R.) [read more …] “Glebe Walk from Colemans in aid of Irish Cancer Society”
