We are sharing this message from John and Carmel Power as posted on the Crecora Goal Mile Facebook page.
Happy New Year to all the friends of the Crecora Goal Mile!
A superb €1,662.51 was collected and sent to Goal, to support their humanitarian work.
Many thanks to you all for your generous donations and for making the Crecora Goal Mile a great Community event
Thanks to all for coming out to support the Crecora Gaol Mile on Christmas Day. It was a great event and we were so fortunate to have sunshine for our hour.
A big thank you to all the volunteers who made the event possible, all the stewards, bucket collectors, those at refreshment stand, our photographer Diane Condon, MC Sean Cooke, Crecora Manister GAA and Eddie Corkery manager of Crecora Junior Camogie who blew the starting whistle.
Well done to Karl Moloney first across the finish line and Donnacha Connolly who came in 2nd, and a special mention for Aoife Gilmartin the first girl to cross the line.
Best wishes to all our supporters for a great 2015!

This is the second year the GAA have run the National Club Draw.
Here are some details from the GAA web site
This year there will be a larger number of prizes, all of which are provided by Ard Chomhairle.
The purpose of running the GAA National Club Draw is to assist clubs in their drive to fundraise much needed funds. In the current economic climate clubs are struggling to raise sufficient funds to develop and promote our National games at all levels. The GAA National Club Draw is an opportunity for clubs to raise up to €20,000. Each club retains all the proceeds from the tickets sold by their club.
