Club President Hikes to Holy Year Cross
Thanks for your interest in the Clonmel RFC 50:22 Challenge where Club President, Ian Cooke, is hiking to the Holy Year Cross 50 times over 22 weeks to raise funds. Clonmel RFC is a community club with our Senior 1st Team playing in Division 2C of the Energia All Ireland League. Our Senior 2nds play in Munster 2nds League, Our U18s & U16s play in the Munster Leagues, whilst our U14s and our two U13s teams play in the East Munster Leagues & Cups. Our Warriors (U7 to U12) play in Blitz’s across Munster and attend numerous Rugby Festivals each year. This is all supported by an army of Volunteers who give their time and energy on a weekly basis to ensure things run smoothly and all our players are coached to a high level As we approach the half-way point, we are very pleased to advise that 25% of all funds raised will be donated to the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA) – see below. It takes a huge effort from a large team of volunteers and sponsors to keep the show on the road. If you have not donated already, we are seeking your support to help with the funding of rugby in the club and to support our chosen charity. We are hugely encouraged by the support so far – it certainly helps Ian stay committed when the weather is cold or wet – or both! You will find photos and video clips of each of the 50 hikes done on this website and across all the club’s social media channels. We would be so grateful if you could kindly help us out with a kind donation of any sort to support Clonmel RFC and rugby in the community in Clonmel. Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA) We are delighted to announce that 25% of the total figure raised will be donated to the IMNDA. This is the only organisation in Ireland providing care and support to families affected by Motor Neurone Disease; an incurable, progressive and terminal condition. The IMNDA’s core services include providing equipment on loan such as wheelchairs, beds, hoists and communication aids as and when they are needed. They also fund home care hours and employ four nurses who visit families in their own home all over the country. This nursing service is funded entirely through donations and fundraising. Your support helps to provide independence, dignity and expert care to over 400 people in Ireland.
