We would like to say a big thank to Órla’s Mother Sinead Trearty, the organizing committee and everyone who came to remember Órla and gave so generously in donations, spot prizes, sponsorship, and all who helped to organize and run the event in any way.
Through the organisers of this event Jack & Jill wish to thank the An Coillte staff and James Herrity, Brendan Mc Daid, Garvin Mc Closkey, Eamon Giles, the Cranford Athletic Club, the Ozaman Centre staff, Maureen Mc Ginley & Tommy Lonergan’s team of helpers, Angie and Julie Wilkinson, and not forgetting The Big Duck and Barney!
We also want to remind the Mountain Rescue, Civil Defense, An Garda, Dr Charlie Mc Manus, the Physiotherapy and O.T departments at Letterkenny Hospital, Edmund & Denise Mc Teague , James & Anne Russell, all who bought lines for Hampers at various locations or who donated their time to our “bag packing” day in Tescos, the Donegal Sports Letterkenny, Lafferty’s Supermarket Creeslough, Muck & Muffins Dunfanaghy, Dessie Shiels & Sons Engineering and IBS printing. Thank you all for your continued support and hope to see you all next year!
