These strange times have been hard on many people - not less our elderly & vulnerable but, as the days turn to weeks, those who suffer with depression and anxiety are feeling the Covid effect very badly.With this in mind, Luke Troy, who many will know from our adult men's football panel, has launched a fantastic idea to support a very worth cause - Pieta House. He encouraged all players, coaches & all members to join him in a collaborative 24 hour run or cycle in Darkness & Light on Saturday evening, 16th May, starting at 6pm. 30 minute slots were assigned to the over 250 runners / cyclists who took part throughout the night until 6pm on Sunday 17th.
At time of writing, Luke had smashed his target of €3000 with a pledge amount of €21,224 raised, 1950 km ran, 596km cycled and 50km walked. Well done to Luke and all concerned.
