This was another wonderful drive. We were blessed with a beautiful sunny day. Billy Meaney and Mary Corcoran lead the way dressed in period costume. It was made all the more special as we dropped into Eoin Larcey’s on route where they were thrashing. It was nice to see all the old machinery in action. Eoin put on soup, sandwiches & tea for all the pony & trap participants, it was greatly appreciated. This year’s event raised €2,380. A huge thanks to Billy Meaney and his team. We appreciate the generous donations towards Marfan Research.
