Corlough GAA are embarking on a historical event this November to mark the 20th anniversary of the death of one of their members PJ McManus, Cortoon, during November, over 20 members and players are going to “Be Brave and Don’t Shave” and all funds raised going to Cavan/Monaghan Palliative Care Comfort Fund.
Since P.J. died, the club have ran a St Stephen’s day charity match to remember and honor one of their great club men. P.J. played from an under age level right up until before he took ill. He also was a very active member on the Club’s Executive Committee.
Since the first PJ McManus St Stephens day charity match back in 1994, over €30,000 has been raised by this event and the club like to think that in some small way they have enhanced the lives of others.
Funds from this year’s charity match will be added to all the money raised during November along with money from a recent Coffee Morning that was held during the clubs festival. The big shave will take place in front of a “Live studio audience” on November 28, in Feehan’s with entertainment on the night by Brendan Brennan, and local barbers have kindly offered their services for the night.
Sponsorship cards are in local shops or from any member and we ask you to please support this fundamental charity.
