The three lo­cal ladies: Vera Gro­gan, Alice Gar­diner, and Betty Rus­sell, who par­tic­i­pated in the re­cent marathon and raised €664 for the Ark­low Cancer Sup­port Group, would like to thank ev­ery­one who spon­sored and sup­ported them in their efforts, and that the above amount has been handed over to the sup­port group.
