Cashel representatives of The Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA) are holding a unique charity event from August 29 to September 3.

Cashel representatives of The Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA) are holding a unique charity event from August 29 to September 3.

Over eight hundred golfers have signed up to play in Ireland’s first six day golf classic in Dundrum House Hotel. The program also includes a Benefit Dance on Thursday, September 1, with The Checkers and a traditional music night on Friday, September 2, both in Dundrum House Hotel.

Motor Neurone is a very rare but incredibly debilitating illness with about 250 people in Ireland suffering from the disease at any one time. The disease which affects speaking, swallowing, walking, breathing and all general movement in the body will eventually lead to patients requiring 24 hour care and needing a vast amount of therapeutic services. The IMNDA provides invaluable specialised nursing advice, support and vital equipment to MND families all over Ireland.

Were it not for the IMNDA, MND patients and their families, would not be able to cope as well.

Three local families in Cashel, found themselves having to come to terms with beloved family members suffering from Motor Neurone Disease. The O’Connor, Reade and McCormack families are hugely appreciative of the support and care provided to them and other sufferers by the IMNDA. In recognition of the care and support the IMNDA provide and their ongoing need of funds, a major fundraising event was organised in Tipperary.

Both committee members and families would like to ask everyone in Tipperary and nearby counties to come and support this worthy cause. Further information can be found on website www.mndtipperary.com

All events are being held in Dundrum House Hotel.
