PRESENTATION TO DUNGARVAN COMMUNITY HOSPITAL
Last week Goldcoast Golf Club presented three specialized seats to Dungarvan Community Hospital in memory of the late John McGrath RIP. The funds raised to purchase these were from entries and donations received from the very successful charity golf day hosted during the summer. An enormous amount of organization and planning went into the event and a huge thank you to all our members, visitors, friends, the McGrath family and anyone that contributed in any way in supporting this worthy cause. The chairs were very gratefully received by Paula French on behalf of Dungarvan Community Hospital and they will provide extra comfort to enhance the daily lives of the residents.
