This huge sum on money was raised by friends and family of the late Vincent O’Rourke and handed over by the family including his mother Bridget Burke.
Vincent’s friends and family organised a fund raising event called Tour de Vince.
It was a cycling event which began in Newcastle, Co Down, where Vincent was born and it finished in Carrigart where Vincent spent his last few days in his parents house.
Those who took part in the three day cycling event were Andrew Colhoun, Colin Shields, Cormac Kernan, Darren Tierney, Eamonn Hamill, Greg Hamill, Jerome Sharvin, John Gelston, Jonny Denvir, Marty Hamill, Mel Currie, Phil McCauley, Stevie Lowery, Wayne Murray, John J McGettigan, Daniel McGuigan, Ryan Harty, Art Kernan, Paul Tallon and Ciaran Walsh.
The back-up team were, Damien McAlary, Andy Wallace and Fintan Sharvin.
All together they raised a staggering sum of €33,000 and gave €25,000 to Donegal hospice and €13,100 to McMillan Cancer in Northern Ireland.
The group would like to thanks their families and all who helped during the events in any way.
