The new Le Chéile Unit at Edenmore National School is providing a fantastic and badly
needed service to children and their families from the area. Megan McCarron and Áine
Treanor decided to run the Mini Marathon recently and they gathered some sponsorship
for the event. Last week they handed over the proceeds at the Unit and the total
amounted to €2,025. The school was delighted with the donation and assured them that
it would be well spent. Congratulations to Megan and Áine for completing the challenge
and raised such a good sum for the Unit. At the presentation were: Barry Cuddy, Principal;Áine
Treanor; Edel McGrath; Megan McCarron and Bernie O'Neill.

€3,000 to some of the representatives of the Le Chéile Class at Edenmore National
School. The money was raised by Áine through her running the recent Dublin Ladies
Mini-Marathon and she was delighted with the support that she received from friends,
family and the local community, with donations towards the class at the school. Included
in the photo are (L-R) Barry Cuddy, Principal, Denise Sherlock, Áine Treanor, Jenny
Stoops and Bernie O'Neill.
Members of Truagh Macra na Feirme make a presentation to Le Chéile, which is accepted
by school Principal, Barry Cuddy. Truagh Macra managed the activity for the Field
Day during the Carrickroe Festival and this money was raised by one of the stalls.
Aaron Loughran, Darren Sherlock and Matthew Flood are representing Truagh Macra in
the picture. This Macra club was inactive for some time but before last Christmas
a few local young people got together to see if there was an interest in getting
the Club active again. There was a good response and a committee formed and now there
are over 40 members. They organise a wide range of activity and participate in county
and national events. There are only four clubs in the County and they meet every
month. There has been no activity during the Summer but it will be starting up again
in September. It is a terrific organisation and can be a major contributor to personal
development as well as fun and enjoyment as well as a very positive and constructive
way of spending time. Well done to the Truagh Macra on this presentation to Le Chéile.
