THE second John Mitchels GAA ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ was another huge success back in late October and it ended up benefitting two local causes to the tune of €500 each.

Out of the eleven couples on that night in Ballygarry, Brendan Dillane and Karen O’Connor were deemed the winners and they presented their winnings to their chosen charities in the John Mitchel’s GAA Complex on Tuesday evening.

Karen O’Connor said she decided to choose Animal Help Net Kerry because she loves animals and praised the work the work they carry out.

Brendan Dillane said he chose Kerry Hospice as his company, Weathermaster, usually supports cancer charities in Kerry and cancer affects every family.

Anna McCarthy of Animal Help Net Kerry was delighted with the donation. “Everything counts and it will help people with veterinary bills. We do as much as we can and please God some day we will have our own shelter.”

Maura Sullivan of Kerry Hospice was also grateful for the support. “We want to thank Brendan for nominating the Hospice as his charity. We’re continually fundraising as we appreciate all that the people of Kerry are doing for us.”
