STAFF at the Revenue Commissioners offices at Spa Road presented a cheque to Kerry Hospice  this morning after they held a fundraiser there recently.

Some staff wore the county colours of their great rivals for a day, while a coffee morning was also held which eventually raised €1,310.

“Theresa Dooley, a staunch and vocal Tipperary supporter, draped her back in black and amber for the day and said it was a penance to don a Cats jersey,” said Kate Carmody, one of the organisers.

She said another staff member, Limerick man John Colbert, donned a Kerry jersey which was painful for him as his county’s footballers had endured some painful defeats at the hands of the Kingdom down the years.

The pain of such psychological torture was alleviated by the fact that their colleagues sponsored their efforts and the money raised was going to such a great cause.

The coffee morning saw staff bring in home baking while Sam McCauley’s CH Chemists, Foley’s Spar and staff at Revenue provided hampers for a raffle.

“Many families have come in contact with cancer at some time and it is wonderful to know there is excellent care and support available locally in Kerry,” said Kate Carmody.

Margaret Crean, Andrea O’Donoghue and Maura Sullivan of Kerry Hospice were on hand to accept the cheque and they expressed their gratitude to staff there for their efforts.
