Turn Claremorris PINK day raises €18746 for Mayo Cancer Support
The committee of ‘Turn Claremorris PINK’ has formally handed over a cheque to Angela Kirrane for €18,437 which was the proceeds from the event held in April in aid of Mayo Cancer Support. The Turn Claremorris PINK day was a huge success and the committee would like to thank all who were involved in the day and to all who contributed to the fundraiser.
Angela Kirrane of Mayo Cancer Support said they are delighted with the amount raised in Claremorris, all of which will be used in their Rock Road House facility in Castlebar to help suffers and families of cancer victims, and that it was a fantastic fundraising day to be involved in.

The town was a sea of pink with balloons, tee shirts and fancy dress. The ‘live’ music helped create a wonderful atmosphere and Mid West Radio greatly enhanced the whole event. Even the weather was in harmony.
Angela expressed her sincere and heartfelt thanks to the Turn Claremorris PINK Committee for this enormous effort on their behalf. It was a day to remember and the goodness generated will continue to flow to the people in our county who need our support.
A special Mass will be said on June 16th at 10am in St Colman’s Church Claremorris for all those who were remembered on the Tree of Remembrance that was in the Square on April 21st – the tree is now placed in Clare Lake.
