Pieta House Presentation: At a function in the Monaghan Harps GFC Headquarters on Monday night, January 27th the funds raised by the Darkness into Light walk/Run held in Monaghan last year were presented to Pieta House representatives - Marie Beelo, Deputy Director of funding and advocacy and Kieran Brady, Director of Funding and Advocacy with Pieta House. The total reached the marvellous sum of €43,310.75. The representatives expressed sincere thanks to all who were involved and prior to her talk Eoghan Kelly, a member of the organising committee, had given a very comprehensive list of people, organisations and businesses without whom the Darkness into Light could not take place and be so successful. Sean McKenna was singled out for special praise and thanks for his tremendous leadership and commitment to the project and his late wife, Valerie, was also remembered for her excellent work for the walk/run. Others highlighted included the Monaghan Harps Club officers and members. After the handover of the cheque Mary McCaffrey introduced the various speakers to announce the launch of a Pieta House Outreach Centre in Castleblayney to serve Monaghan and Cavan. This Centre would have 20 hours of counselling available each week for a start but work will continue to establish a full Pieta House Centre there. Speakers included Eimear Mulligan, Suicide Prevention Officer with HSE; Una Forde, Director of Nursing with HSE Mental Health. Also in attendance was Cathal Grant HSE. It was a very positive meeting and showed a combined effort by a number of agencies to achieve their objective. Jimmy Croarkin thanked everyone for attending and invited all to refreshments.
