Support the St Kierans GAA fundraiser for Milford Care Centre and Temple Street on Monday, December 27

St Kierans GAA, Ardagh, has organised a GoFundMe for their charity road hurling fundraiser for Milford Care Centre and Temple Street Children’s Hospital. 

Since 2016, the GAA club has raised over €13,000 for local charities through their annual road hurling on December 27. 

The event has become a great social occasion as well as an amazing way to raise funds for good causes.

Along with the participating hurlers, walkers have begun walking the route over the years in support of the fundraiser. 

Organisers of the St Kierans GAA fundraiser said, “This year, more than ever, it’s really important that we run and promote this event as it has been a very challenging year, for obvious reasons, for everyone and especially for all charitable organizations.”

Milford Care Centre provides specialist palliative care in the MidWest as a voluntary not-for-profit organisation. Other services they provide include a nursing home and bereavement support. The centre, which has touched the lives of many people in the midwest region, operates through donations and fundraising activities. 

Temple Street Children’s Hospital aims to promote and provide child-centered, research-led, and learning-informed healthcare, to the highest standards of safety and excellence. 

Temple Street holds a special place in the hearts of the members of St Kierans GAA as they were at the center of St Kierans GAA member Orin Hough’s recovery following an accident. 

The organisers add, “With the obvious challenges that Covid 19 brings to running this event safely, we will adapt the format to make the event a success. Step 1 is to set up this GoFundme page and so we’d encourage you to be as generous as you can to support our charities using this donation system. There will be a bucket collection on the day too.”

St Kierans GAA would like to thank everyone for their support so far and hope that they will be supported again on Monday, December 27.
