Wrens do­nate to local char­i­ties

The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

AF­TER a Wren’s Day that was gen­er­ally agreed to have been the best in a long time, the tin whis­tles, fifes and drums have been put away and there’s noth­ing left for an­other year but to bask in the af­ter­glow at the var­i­ous wren ball nights and, just as im­por­tantly, to give money that was col­lected on the streets to char­ity.

In the case of the Sráid Eoin and Quay Wrens the do­na­tions to char­i­ties were made at sep­a­rate ball nights held on Fri­day in the Bar­rack Height and Danno’s re­spec­tively. Sráid Eoin do­nated €600 each to West Kerry Care of the Aged and the Dingle Cam­phill Com­mu­nity while the Quay do­nated €2,000 to the RNLI.

The Goat Street Wren will hold their ball night next week­end when they will do­nate €1,000 to the local branch of the Kerry Hos­pice As­so­ci­a­tion, plus €500 each to Cuan Coun­selling, Gairdín Mhuire, and the Lady­bird Unit in CUH in mem­ory of Keady Clif­ford. Mean­while, the Green & Gold will make a do­na­tion to the Kerry/Cork Health Link Bus in the near fu­ture.
