Catherine Puts Best Foot Forward by Climbing Mountain and Raising Money for Arthritis Ireland
Intrepid Oireachtas Members from all sides of the House put their best foot forward and trekked up Comeragh Mountains, Co Waterford yesterday. In doing so they succeeded in raising funds for the Arthritis Ireland.
Senator Noone said: “We had a great turn out from TDs and Senators from all sides as well as from Oireachtas staff members. Despite the tough terrain we all rolled up our sleeves and completed the walk.
More importantly, we managed to generate money for an extremely worthy cause. Arthritis Ireland do great work and we are all thrilled that by our efforts today, we will help contribute to their efforts
John Church, CEO Arthritis Ireland said today,
“We are absolutely honoured to be a beneficiary of the annual Oireachtas hill walk. It is these types of initiatives that help us make a big difference to people with arthritis and their families”
