Get down to Ti­na­hely on Sun­day for a su­per day

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT -

THIS Sun­day will see the an­nual Ellen Kinch Me­mo­rial Cup com­pe­ti­tion take place in Ti­na­hely with a large crowd ex­pected to cel­e­brate the me­mory of a won­der­ful Wick­low GAA sup­porter.

Fea­tur­ing 16 teams from four coun­ties and six ra­zor-sharp ref­er­ees, the ac­tion gets un­der­way at noon on Sun­day with plenty of ac­tiv­i­ties and en­ter­tain­ment in­clud­ing face paint­ing for all ages and delec­ta­tions.

The event raises money for Bar­ret­stown and this year the Kinch fam­ily are hop­ing to raise the grand to­tal of €2,700 and to that end they have set up an online do­na­tion page at https://give. ev­ery­day­hero.ie/ellen-kinch-me­mo­rial-cup-2019.

Al­ready, the to­tal raised is ex­actly 50 per cent of the de­sired to­tal at €1,400.

Vis­i­tors to the do­na­tion page will see a mov­ing note from Jackie Kinch that says: ‘I’ve cre­ated this page be­cause I want to make a dif­fer­ence. the Ellen Kinch Me­mo­rial Cup is an adult ladiews foot­ball blitz. a day of great fun and smiles all round in aid of a great cause, Bar­ret­stown, and keep­ing my sis­ter’s name alive,’ she wrote, be­fore high­light­ing the amaz­ing work done by the or­gan­i­sa­tion for not just Ellen but con­stantly.
