Spraoi agus Spórt chairperson, Patricia Lee, says “Everyone gives their best, but we
could not do this without the support of our funders and our community who support us
with fundraising. These include public sector funders like Pobal, the HSE and the
Department of Community and Rural Development.”

“But we also get great funding support from our local community. For example, The Square
Bar, Clonmany raised €8,100 euro for us over Christmas. Tommy & Margaret Doherty
recently donated €1,000 from donations they sought in lieu of presents for their 50th
Wedding Anniversary. So, we hope these awards show them all, once more, that their
faith in us is fully justified!”
