Pink is the colour ...

O'Connell's Bar was packed last night for the Pink Night breast cancer awareness gig organised by the Kilcullen Team for Relay for Life Kildare 2016, writes Brian Byrne.

On display was the cheque for €85,000-plus which was raised at the county event on the Curragh Racecourse this year, to which the Kilcullen group had contributed a very respectable €2,600. And the Relay is just one of many cancer-related fundraising events held in the region during any given year.

"It's really amazing what is raised for the fight against cancer in this community and across the county," says Sabina Reddy, organiser of the Kilcullen effort for the Relay, which is a global initiative.
