The Barbacue

The Slowey Families led by Aine, Mairead and Anthony, put on a splendid Barbacue on Sunday evening, 20th August.  The proceeds went to Cancer Care West, Women’s Resource Centre Portnoo, and Woodhill Resource Centre.

It was an amazing evening of music and food and good banter in memory of Gerard and Margaret Slowey. The top musicians in the country led by Stephen Slowey and John Joe Mc Brearty belted the best of music and Scarlet Rose was superb as MC for the evening.



Donegal Association Makes Presentation

Elaine Caffrey,Chairperson of Donegal Association in Dublin made a presentation to Grainne Mc Gettigan (fundraiser in Donegal for Cancer Care West) at the Barbacue on Sunday night, 20th August. The proceeds were from the Donegal Person of the Year Function in the Regency Hotel in March. It is the privilege of the nominated Person of the Year to select a charity, and this year’s recipient has nominated Cancer Care West because of the respect Gerard Slowey had for that charity. A total of €5,500 was collected for the fund and this was gladly accepted on behalf of Cancer Care West by Grainne Mc Gettigan.
