Dunnes Pack-a-bag last Saturday

Hi all

Just like to say a big thank you to all those who helped out last Saturday at the pack-a-bag in Dunnes. We raised over €2,700 for the renovation fund.

A special thank you should go to those who, especially the Rovers, were able to stay there for longer then the three hours. Some even stayed for the whole day. We had great support from Parents as well and we could not of done it without their help, well done all.

Thanks again
