Faces behind the Purple & Gold - Donations to Charity
Money raised from the "Faces behind the Purple & Gold" book was presented to Pieta House and Laura Lynn Children's Hospice.
Paul Collins presented the cheques to Brian McEvoy from Pieta House and Liz O'Riordan from Laura Lynn Children's Hospice. Both charities split the profits from the book sales and received €1,733.59 each.
The "Faces behind the Purple & Gold" was launched to great acclaim and sold almost 500 copies in 2016.
For a final time, many thanks to all who contributed and supported this project. Thanks also to all the book sellers including Jean Carr and all in the club shop, Mick Kinsella and all in the Village Cafe, John O'Reilly Butchers on Deerpark Road and Sean Allen.
A special word of thanks must be given to club sponsors Bank of Ireland along with Karl Manning and John McClave from the Montrose branch who provided great banking assistance for this project.
