Truvale is a Golf Society made up of members from Truagh and Emyvale and they organise
outings for its members and arrange competitions on various Golf Course for the enjoyment
of members. Each year they run a particular competition called the Charity Cup and
it is played over two rounds on the Aughnacloy Golf Course and Rossmore in Monaghan.
Any funds raised from this competition they present to local charities. This year
two charities benefited and they are Crocus and The Autism Centre at Ballyoisin.
Both these charities assist people and many gain immensely from both. Crocus now
has its Centre just off Rowantree Road in Monaghan and is open daily Monday to Friday
and it provides services and supports to cancer sufferers and their families. It
is open to men and ladies and there is no charge for the services available and for
the various activities organised to bring solace and healing to cancer patients and
their families. It depends on voluntary contributions and is a very important and
beneficial organisation in our area. The Autism Centre at Ballyoisin is part of and
also independent of the Special Needs unit and again it is an essential facility
as there are so many families who can benefit from it when it is up and running fully.
Well done to Truvale for their generosity and assistance to to two very worthy causes.
