Vi­tal funds raised at mighty match

Bray People - - SPORT -

THE Balt­in­glass ladies GAA team and the Donard-The Glen camogie team bat­tled it out for can­cer in a char­ity game played in Donard GAA grounds last week­end on what was a mem­o­rable and worth­while oc­ca­sion for all in­volved.

Both teams put up a re­ally good dis­play of foot­ball and camogie on the day and all in attendance got a chance to see some of the best play­ers in the county play­ing both codes dur­ing the match.

The rules of the match were quiet unique, with the first half all foot­ball and the sec­ond half all camogie.

As ex­pected both teams won their own half with both sets of play­ers show­ing great skills in both foot­ball and camogie.

Damian Byrne was the ref­eree for the match and the game was played in a very sport­ing man­ner.

This game was not about win­ning or los­ing but about rais­ing money for Ac­tion Breast Can­cer and the funds raised will be of huge ben­e­fit to peo­ple af­fected by breast can­cer.

A big thank you is of­fered to all who at­tended the match or who spon­sored any of the play­ers on the day.

The or­gan­is­ers would like to of­fer many thanks to both play­ers and man­age­ment who played on the day and to Donard GAA Club and Twoomeys Bar, Donard, who pro­vided food and re­fresh­ments after the game.

Fi­nally a spe­cial word of thanks to Amanda Mills, Mary O’Neill and Paul Gar­ri­gan who or­gan­ised the event.
