Community rallies round for Ukraine

Thank you to all who rallied around last week to send necessary medical supplies, sleeping bags, non perishable food and so much more to those displaced by the invasion of Ukraine. Among the many local collection points were Blarney GAA which become a hub thanks to Valerie Kirby and Martin O’Shea, the local schools, Courtbrack community centre and, always at the heart of the community, O’Leary’s Supervalu Tower and Centra Blarney village who opened their doors to donations. Adrian O’Connell, Damian Boylan, Jim Geaney and Colin Murphy had a busy week transporting the contributions into the collection point in Cork, from where it travelled on to help those who have lost everything.ab1f903f-dca3-49c8-bc5f-6dc4ac2ec9b2
