Vintage run Sunday 25th October

Vintage run Sunday 25th October Cormeen Moynalty

Run leaves at 12 ish from The Jolly old Cross pub, Cormeen, Moynalty and travels to Bailieboro, Kingscourt into Kilmainhamwood and back to Cormeen Approx 2 hrs. There will obviously be nothing in cormeen during this time but I can organise for some photographers to travel with the lead car and have full access in front of the run. Plenty of stationary shots after the run in the car park. Soup and sandwiches afterwards followed by Charity auction at about 3-30 and music at 5 for the evening. Breaky lake (source of all my best photographs)is down the back of the hill and might pass an hour also.

Thanks Willie

Trim Canoe Club Photo’s

Hi Dave and co

Thanks for taking the time to watch and take photos of the canoeists on Sunday. They all felt very important with the paparazzi waiting for them under the bridge 🙂 I’ve attached a link to the National Trails Day website where there is a competition for the best photo from the day. Have a look and see if you’re interested.

Looking forward to seeing a few of your photos.

Best wishes Claire Murphy PRO Trim Canoe Club

Charity Auction 25th Oct for Crumlin Childrens Hospital

Crumlin 198

As you are aware my son Peter has been an inpatient on St John Ward in Our Lady’s Children Hospital Crumlin for the last 4.5 months receiving treatment for Acute Myeloid Lukemia. This has been a very intense and emotional time for our family and we received great support while in hospital from both medical and non medical staff. Peter is home now and recovering well. We would now like to give something back to all those who supported us throughout our journey as a thank you and also to help support the many other families who will need the facility in the future.

A local committee has been set up to organise fundraising for Our Lady’s Children Hospital Crumlin, one of the events will be a Charity Auction on Sunday the 25th October. This is where your help comes in. I am looking for images to be auctioned on the night. If you could donate an image mounted and framed preferably ready for the night, but everything is welcome. Looking forward to your help and thanking you in advance.
