Donard Trac­tor Run had a very suc­cess­ful day on Sun­day, June 9. Over 140 trac­tors, vin­tage cars, jeeps and a fire en­gine took part and raised vi­tal funds for so many lo­cal causes.

The ben­e­fi­cia­ries of the fund were: Donard/Glen Com­mu­nity Text Alert re­ceives €1,000, Cam­phill Dun­shane, €750, Donard ICA. €500, Donard Walking Club €500, Jack Mul­li­gan Dwarfism Fund, €500, Donard His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety €261.

The com­mit­tee would like to ex­press sin­cere thanks and ap­pre­ci­a­tion to all the peo­ple who took part and con­trib­uted so gen­er­ously to the day.

Also many thanks to the helpers, vol­un­teers and con­trib­u­tors who made the day a success and helped in any way to as­sist the won­der­ful com­mu­nity gath­er­ing for so many good causes. A spe­cial thanks to the spon­sors who pro­vided sup­port helped in so many ways.


The Ea­monn Mur­ray Me­mo­rial Char­ity Walk will take place up Lug­naquilla on Sun­day next, June 23, start­ing from Fen­ton’s at 2 p.m. Com­ple­men­tary re­fresh­ments will be served on re­turn.

On Satur­day last we trav­elled to Barn­dar­rig to play the lo­cals in an im­por­tant Di­vi­sion 2 League game. The sides were level at half time with 1.5 each. The lo­cals gave away a penalty early in the sec­ond half when Alan Daly was fouled. He put the penalty away with style. Un­for­tu­nately that seemed to spur on the op­po­si­tion more than our lads. While Liam Mon­aghan did well at no 14 Liam Mullen was a huge loss and a lot of chances were missed in the sec­ond half. The team was; R Hal­lo­ran, K Os­bourne, A Tutty, E Kelly, H Man­gan, J Whyte. S Bran­ni­gan (0-1), G Fin­lay, J Han­bidge, N Cur­ran, D O’Neill, C Henly (0-1), A Daly (2-1), D Mann (0-2) L Mon­aghan (0-2). The subs were B Len­non, L Daly, and G Healy.

Our ju­nior team had no game last week. We were fixed to play Coolkenno in Donard on Thurs­day, but a very early morn­ing call from the south county side told us they could not field a team. Our lads were very dis­ap­pointed as we were look­ing for­ward to even mat­ters af­ter los­ing a tough game by a few points in their home game.

There was no lotto winner last week. Bill Keogh, Kay Kelly, Tommy Dwyer, Jim and Gar­rett, Mick Cullen, Mary Brett and Ann Sully matched three and won €30 each. Amanda But­ler won the seller’s prize. The jack­pot is now €6,600.


Donard Na­tional School will be get­ting an ad­di­tional class­room and of­fice in the near fu­ture. The ten­der doc­u­ments for the school extension have been pub­lished. Lo­cal con­trac­tors can ac­cess all in­for­ma­tion on the eTen­ders pro­cure­ment web­site.
