The south Sligo village of Monasteraden united behind a very worthy cause, and in the process raised €11,000 for charity.
A group of locals, using Drury’s Bar as their headquarters, set up a Shave or Dye fundraiser to benefit the Irish Cancer Society. The fruits of their labour, a cheque for €11,000 was presented to Ena Barrett of the Irish Cancer Society earlier this week.
“Many thanks to everyone who sponsored us and to all the local businesses that gave all the spot prizes,” said a spokesperson for the fundraising group. “To Drury’s Bar and everyone’s good will, many thanks also.”
