On behalf of the Molloy family and the Glen Tavern, we would like to thank everyone who supported our Alzheimer’s fundraiser weekend in August.

I wish to thank Mary Gill who provided all the food for Friday and Saturday night and our own family the Cufflinks and our good friends the Campbell’s who provided wonderful music. As you all know this is a charity which is very dear to both families. Last year we helped to buy the bed and hoist for Glenties Alzheimers Comfort Fund as they had poor changing facilities. This has been a greatly successful event, this year we raised €2500 which will be donated to the Alzheimers Comfort Fund in the Glenties Day Centre.
