McGrath Family Donate to Temple Street

On December 2nd, Jack McGrath and family from Fountainstown went to Temple Street Children’s University Hospital Dublin.

Jack says, “Following a series of successful fundraising events over the last few months in memory of the late Noah McGrath, (Jack’s Grandson who passed away in Temple Street in 2017), and with the help of the people from Fountainstown, Crosshaven, Carrigaline and surrounding areas, we were able to give a cheque for €6,054.00 in Noah name.

As a family, we would like to give a grateful thanks to all the people who made this work for Temple Street. I would like to thank the following people; Rob Lotty and the Cork College’s Camogie who ran a blitz in Inniscarra. On the day, we had about 180 girls playing. The Oar Bar Crosshaven for the Darts Night And Social Night in Noah’s name for Temple Street. Also, the following people: S. Lane Motors, Carrigaline Tyre Depot, Buckley’s Bar Crosshaven, Lynch’s Centra Crosshaven, Peter Lee Crosshaven, Sports Gear Direct, Ger McCarthy Trophies, KWP Print Carrigaline, The Carrigdhoun Newspaper, MCG Logistics Dublin, Crosshaven Post Office.

I would like to thank Mairéad McCormack, Westmeath Camogie Captain, who took a day’s holiday so she could give her support for Temple Street and the work done to give the donation.

Now, I must give a big Thanks to Careplus Pharmacy for coming in to help us to bring the cheque to €6,054.00 as we had a cheque for €3,554.00 they came in with a cheque for €2,500.00 so on the day we give a cheque for €6,054.00 to Temple Street.

At this time as a family we would like wish all the people from the area all the best for Christmas and a happy new year.
