Thanks to everyone who supported the table quiz which took place on Friday 31st January in The Wallis Arms.  An incredible total of €1618 was raised to help pay for the six students who are going to Lourdes at Easter with the Irish Pilgrimage Trust.

A lot of people were thanked at the quiz but it is worth mentioning a few again.  Firstly, John Tarrant for providing such a great set of questions – not too difficult, not too easy – and four sets of tie-breakers, all of which were needed!  Secondly, Billy, Nigel and the staff at The Wallis Arms for making us all welcome and for being so accommodating.  Thirdly, all those who sponsored raffle prizes.  A list of all the shops and businesses who did so was read out on the night. Lastly, to everyone who came along to take part or help out.  It was a really great effort!

The truly inspiring spirit of the many participants in Saturday's delayed Boeing Swim in aid of Cork Mental Health

The truly inspiring spirit of the many participants in Saturday’s delayed Boeing Swim in aid of Cork Mental Health Foundation (and the money is used by that Foundation at a local level) was clearly in evidence despite the wind and the rain.    Because of the high level of the river Blackwater a section was cordoned off within which the swimmers had to stay.   Martin Crean gave some “splashing” surprises and he in turn got some return splashes!   We’ve lots more pictures to share over the next two days.  Click on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)
