Thank you to all who came out on St. Stephen’s Day and supported the Goal Mile at St Patrick’s GAA Club, Stamullen. A great morning was had by all, old and young took to the track to run walk or jog and €815 was raised for Goal to help some of the world’s poorest and most desperate people. We enjoyed tea and scones in the clubhouse afterwards and it was good to catch up with neighbours, friends and visitors to the parish.

Thanks to Brendan Meade and Star of the Sea Athletic Club too, they are out in force every year.
