“We as a com­mit­tee would like to thank all 24 dancers for tak­ing part in this fundrais­ing event for us. We un­der­stand that they are giv­ing up their time and we would like them to know that we ap­pre­ci­ate it. We are very grate­ful for their help and sup­port,” Noel O Con­nor, Chair­per­son of Cause­way GAA said.
