Fundraising reached an all-time high here at the weekend when no less than three events were held for the same worthy cause. The late Jerry O Leary fundraising efforts in aid of the Oncology Department of the Cork Universary Hospital opened on Saturday with a coffee morning at the home of his wife Teresa and her little boy in Rathcoole. Then on Saturday night a monster auction and raffle was held at the Clara Inn with items realising huge prices. This was followed on Sunday afternoon by a monster Vintage run which took off from Drishane Castle. All events only went to show the high esteem at which trucker, Jerry was held. A truly outstanding tribute in these recessional times.
