Coffee Morning for Cancer Research held on 6th May at Madaboy was a great success enjoyed by all who came.  There was great chat, mountains of delicious cakes and above all wonderful entertainment from the Yukealadies led by Sinead Dinneen.  A huge thanks to her and her fellow musicians, Denise, Rachel and Susan.  Indeed a huge thanks to all those who brought the delicious home-baked goodies, those who helped with serving it all and to everyone who came and gave so generously, in spite of other fundraising events.  Our goal was well surpassed and, with a generous donation from Mulcair Credit Union, the event raised €2,270.  This money has been distributed between the charity ‘Breakthrough Cancer Research’ in Cork and ‘The Irish Cancer Society’.
