Last Saturday we hosted a ceili in Carfin in memory of Des Maguire raising £2000 for St Andrew’s Hospice. Des who sadly passed away last January, spent his last days in the hospice, and his family wanted to help raise funds so that the same level of care would be available to other patients and their families when needed. Des and his family were great members of our branch for many years, and we were honoured to do this in his memory.
Well folks, the fleadh has been and gone, and all our effort paid off in the end! Thanks again to everyone who helped with all the organising and fundraising, and helped out on the day to make it a success.
