A must successful Fund Raising Horse Ride was held recently in Dundrum on behalf of Scoil Aonghusa Special School, Cahir Road, Cashel.
The school caters for students from four to 18 years of age and with varying degrees of learning disabilities.
Some of the students participate in horse riding as part of their school activities and on the day a number were on horseback at the start of the ride.
Organised by The Premier Harriers Hunt, over one hundred people took part and all enjoyed a fun ride over varied countryside with optional jumping for those who wished.
The organisers would like to extend thanks in the first instance to the landowners who generously allowed the ride across their lands, to those who gave items for the charity auction which was held that evening, those who helped with the stewarding and traffic control on the day especially the Order of Malta who provided ambulance back up, Willie Crowe and his staff in Dundrum who supplied food and refreshments after the event.
The auction in the Venue, Dundrum, conducted by the legendary “Sultan O’Connell” was a huge success and combined with the Charity Ride raised over €8,500.
Geraldine Meagher, chairperson of School Aonghusa Fundraising Committee said that she was staggered by the amount of money raised and assured all those involved that every cent would be used wisely to help the students of the school.
