We were all very upset to hear earlier this year that the great indestructible Kerry man, Moss Keane, had been hit with cancer; but of course in his inimitable style, he is fighting and remains immensely cheerful and in great form.
Killester Travel are holding a golf day to celebrate Mossâ€™s career and also to raise some much needed money for the IRFU Charitable Trust and Stuart Mangan Appeal â€“ both charities looking after seriously injured players. We know it is a tough year and because of that we have tailored the competition in a particular way.

Stuart Mangan is a 25 year old rugby player from Cork who sustained a very serious spinal injury during a game for his club in the UK on April 5th, 2008. He has been left paralysed and will require 24 hour medical care for the rest of his life. You may have seen or heard Keith Woodâ€™s or Paul Oâ€™Connellâ€™s radio and television appeals for support for the fund.
Meeting Stuart has inspired me to champion Night Around Tables â€“ a global fundraiser for the Stuart Mangan Appeal. The event will involve people from Sydney to Sligo, New York to Newcastle, Cape Town to Cork, hosting a meal with friends at home for Stuart on one special night across the world â€“ Keith Wood
You can read more about this and other ways to help â€“ check out Stuartâ€™s appeal at www.stuartmangan.org.
In support of the efforts of those in Munster Rugby, Irish and English Rugby and indeed Rugby worldwide to raise funds for Stuart Mangan, the members of Sligo Rugby Club have arranged a table quiz to be held in The Glasshouse Hotel on Tuesday May 26th 2009 at 8pm. The cost of a table is â‚¬40. All are welcome â€“ please come along, bring some friends and support the appeal!
Friday nightâ€™s racenight fundraiser in The Strand Bar for the injured Paddy Pearson proved a massive success with club members, locals, and many others turning out in force to ensure that a substantial sum was raised. Paddy, our New Zealand born out-half, was badly burned in an incident just before Halloween when his heroic efforts in attempting to save a team-mate who had caught fire tragically led to his own injury. Paddy, who having only arrived this season, had already major a huge impact at the club where he is sadly missed on and off the field. Continue reading ‘Pearson Fundraiser Proves Great Success’
As you may or may not be aware a young Sligo Rugby Club player, our New Zealand outhalf Paddy Pearson was badly burned in an incident in Sligo just before Halloween. His heroic efforts saved his team-mate and tragically led to his own injury.
We are glad to report that Paddy is making progress in hospital in Galway where he is receiving ongoing medical attention. It looks like he will have to have a number of skin-graft operations for his injuries and this may well take him several years to recover from.
As a carpenter, the use of his hands is critical to Paddyâ€™s livelihood. This is something that is of ongoing concern to him and those close to him in securing an income for the future.
We (Sligo RFC) have put together a fundraising group consisting of Rodger Burrows, Cameron Giles, Aisling Burrows, Cliona Oâ€™Kelly, Marion Rolf and Rory Raftery. We have organised a Race Night in The Strand on Friday November 28th at 8:30pm. The first race is off at 9pm and we hope to have a rugby memorabilia auction on the night.

Sligo RFC member, James Coulter, held a very successful tag-rugby fundraiser for the Niall Mellon Township Trust on Saturday last, 25th October, in the Skreen/Dromard Community Centre. There was a great turnout on the evening, which saw Sligo RFC take on the local side St. Pats in a mixed tag game. In a close run encounter the club team ran out victorious by a narrow margin, but the exciting display of rugby by the local side suggests that this could be the start of a great tag team in Skreen. The event was well supported by club members and the local community alike and the evening was enjoyed by all and the figure raised will be very beneficial to a deserving cause. James would like to thank everyone who supported the event and who helped in making the event such a great success.
Sligo RFC club member, James Coulter, is holding a tag-rugby fundraiser for the Niall Mellon Township trust this Saturday, October 25th, at 7pm at the Skreen/Dromard Community Centre. It is a mixed tag event, with St Pats taking on Sligo RFC in what promises to be a hugely entertaining evening. Drinks after the event will take place in The Fiddlers and all club members are urged to support this event for a worthy cause.
