The Youghal Cancer Support House has received a cheque for €37,014 following last month’s legends of the nineties and noughties hurling match between Cork and Waterford, writes Christy Parker.
The game, at the Youghal GAA grounds on Magner’s Hill on May 31st, drew an attendance of over 2,500 from across the region and beyond.
The cheque was presented to the delighted charity representatives at their centre in Friar Street amidst an afterglow of satisfaction from a job well done.
