DUNLEWEY Celtic have presented the proceeds of a recent memorial match for Michéal ‘Roycee’ Roarty to the Irish Kidney Association House.
Dunlewey held the match on August 4 at Glentornan Park.
The game was in memory of Michéal, a player with the club who was one of four young men to lose their life in a horrific accident in west Donegal in January.
The game raised funds for Irish Kidney Association House in Beaumont, Dublin as Michéal was a patient in the Renal Centre there a few years ago and his family selected this charity when approached about the game.
The memorial match helped to raise €4,255.00 with the thanks of the local communities and beyond.
The club said: “We would like to thank everyone who donated and came out to support us on the day even though the weather was against us.
“We would like to thank all the players that got involved and all the ladies that helped serve the food and all the sponsors that were kind enough to donate to us, Roarty’s Shop Dunlewey, An Chúirt Hotel, Donegal Bouncy Castles, Óstán Loch Altan, The Dunlewey Committee, Eamonn Coyle Memorials, Paul A Roarty Electrician and Ionad Cois Locha.”Tags:
