THE spirit of giving was certainly in evidence west of the bridge this Christmas as a local group decided to raise funds for a worthy cause.

The Curraheen Community Choir got together on Thursday, December 14 to sing Christmas carols for an hour outside O’Shea’s Gala shop and service station in Blennerville.

“Mary O’Shea of O’Shea’s Gala and Jack Lacey of the choir were having a chat and they decided to organise it in aid of St Vincent de Paul,” said Brendan O’Brien of the Choir. “Customers went in and out of the shop and gave generously during the hour.”

Around €400 was raised was handed over to Junior Locke of St Vincent de Paul on Tuesday night and he thanked the choir for their efforts.

“We would like to thank the O’Shea family and all the members of the choir. The money will go a long way towards all the work we do at St Vincent de Paul. It’s welcome at this time of the year when a lot of bills come in for people. We want to let people know that we are there for people in difficulty,” he said.
