The McGrath family from Fountainstown launched their Camogie Fundraiser for Temple Street Children’s Hospital in The Oar Bar, Crosshaven recently.
The annual fundraiser, which this year will see over 200 camogie players taking part in a blitz from October 9thto 16th, is held in memory of organiser Jack McGrath’s grandson Noah Martin McGrath who passed away in Temple Street Children’s Hospital in November 2017. Jack himself has a long association with the sport of Camogie as a coach, a referee across all grades including All Ireland Final level and he is the sponsor of the McGrath Intermediate All-Ireland Cup.
The event will take place again this year in Coachford Camogie Club in collaboration with the Cork Camogie Colleges.
Last Saturday at The Oar Bar, photos were taken to launch the event with Cork Camogie players Stef Beusang, Ciara Daly and Aine Crowley. As well as the Camogie blitz, fundraisers will also take place in the form of a darts night, a social night, bag packing and photo shoots for kids.
