Donation made in honour of The Meadow Lads, Newry

Two recent memorial events in honour of The Meadow Lads, Bernard Larkin, Michael Sarsfield and Liam Boyle where held on Saturday 7th July 2012, the first event was a 5k sponsored Walk & 10k Sponsored Run along the Carnbane towpath, a lot of time and effort was put in by friends and family members of the lads to make the event successful. The weather was also very kind helping make it all the more enjoyable for everyone, a follow on evening event was then held in Belinnis with over 300 people attending, music was provided by the fantastic Ruby, followed by great entertainment from the fabulous Burlesque Belles and then continued by the excellent DJ Aiden Griffin lots of spot prizes were donated and the Compère for the evening was non other than our own Mr Pat McGinn who done a fantastic job of facilitating the event.
