Donation to Pieta House

The presentation of a cheque for €1,500 to Pieta House in Tuam (l-r): Pat Keane, CCR Chair, Austin Garvin, Donna Burke, Pieta House, Billy Fitzpatrick, Micheál McLoughlin, Catherine Lavery and Allan Tiernan, CCR manager.

Thank you to everyone who supported our ‘Will Galway bate Mayo?‘ score prediction competition back in June. Overall, the terrific sum of €3,000 was raised for the radio station and our partner Pieta House.

This morning, several members of Claremorris Community Radio travelled to Tuam to present Pieta House with a cheque for €1,500.

Congratulations to all involved in the running of this very successful event.

Galway did bate Mayo

Over 400 people entered our recent ‘Will Galway bate Mayo?’ competition and we thank all who did so.  No-one accurately predicted the scoreline in the match which was, of course, Galway 0-15 Mayo 1-11.

However, three people did correctly predict the points total of both teams.  Congratulations to the following, who will each receive a share of the €450 prize.  They are:

  • Mark Hyland
  • John Dooley
  • Mary Gorham

At this point, we would also like to all the venues who took care of a submission sheet: Tierneys (Foxhall), Lyons (Roundfort), Dempseys’ Olde Woods (Balla), Lallys (Garrafrauns), Sheridans (Milltown), Clarkes (Ballindine), Fraynes (Tooreen), Jackie’s (Ballindine), Oran Cabs (Oranmore) and CBE (Claremorris).

Thanks also to Donna Burke and staff, Pieta House, Tuam, and to everyone who helped out on the day of the match itself in Salthill.
