Sincere thanks to Cathal Talty and staff of Talty Stores Lissycasey, for their marvellous donation of €650.00 to the West Clare Cancer Centre here in Kilkee from their ‘Movember’ fundraiser held in November 2017.

A massive “Thank You” to Keelin Power and Caoimhe, Naoise, Eorann, Fionn & Muireann Hegarty, for their marathon 8 hour fundraiser (with just a short break for dinner!) on St. Stephen’s Day in aid of the West Clare Mini Marathon Cancer Care Centre.
Our “SUPER SIX”, armed with their musical instruments and radiating an infectious enthusiasm for their mission, performed angelically and charmed their way into the homes and hearts of the occupants in, and around Kildysart and Labasheeda.
Fionn, nominated as Master of Coin for the day, shook his collection bucket with relish, reminding everybody that beautiful and all as the music was, it was not a free concert!!!!
Thanks also of course to mothers Valerie Hegarty and Roisin Power for accompanying their little caped crusaders. We are extremely grateful to all of you!
