TARA'S JOURNEY: Table Quiz; Following the success of the Mná Le Chéile night recently held in Kilcornan House, Tara O’Shaughnessy one of our strong local heroines, who was honoured on the night, is holding a table quiz in Kilcornan house on Friday September 9 at 8pm. She is asking for your support to help her on her journey to Vegas, where she will represent our parish on a world stage.
Tara has an amazing story that has taken her on an incredible journey she went from being eight stone over weight, unable to keep up with her children, to being a world record holding sports woman. She is a mum, cancer survivor, multi World and European record holder for power lifting and has just qualified to lift at the Olympia in Las Vegas in September. This trip is expensive and your support at this event would be gratefully appreciated. Tables of four €20, plenty of spot prizes on the night. A great night out is promised. Tara doesn't have a sponsor and is attempting to raise all funds needed for this journey herself.
