Rowing Club Donates Thousands To Pieta House After ‘Nun Challenge’

Posted by


At the presentation of a cheque for €2,200 to Pieta House on Wednesday evening at Tralee Rowing Club’s boathouse were Glyn Wells, Celine Cusack (Treasurer), Barbara Damm Lillo (PRO), Heidi Giles (Captain), Miriam Pope and John Tuite from Tralee Rowing Club, and Ann Leahy O’Shea and Con O’Connor from Pieta House Tralee.

PIETA House received a cheque for €2,200 last night after the efforts of a local club to beat a world record for the most people dressed up as nuns in the one place.

Back on Saturday, June 15, hundreds of people gathered in the Town Park for the Tralee Nun Challenge organised by Tralee Rowing Club.

The aim was to beat the Guinness Book Of Records feat of 1,436 people dressed as nuns assembled in one place, achieved by people of Listowel and north Kerry back in 2012.

Despite not coming close to the record, the event was a success for the club and their charity partner, Pieta House. Con O’Connor of Pieta House thanked the club for their generosity.

Tralee Rowing Club again expressed gratitude for the massive support and generosity shown by the community and businesses in Tralee who supported the fundraising event.
