“We get about 10 to 15% funding from the Government and the rest comes from the community. That’s why it is so important to acknowledge the fantastic amount raised by the Tralee Golf Club event. It keeps the doors open. Last year we saw over 6,500 people use the services of Pieta House and on behalf of them and all at Pieta House I want to say thank you to Tralee Golf Club.”
