Ballyvary Hurling Club are launching a virtual event on the June Bank Holiday Weekend to support the Daisy Lodge Project in Cong.

For over 5 years Daisy Lodge has been providing short therapeutic services to families with a child 0-18 years of age battling cancer.

Unfortunately, Daisy Lodge in Newcastle, Co. Down, can only provide one out of seven families with a short therapeutic break and due to increased numbers, they are now looking to build a centre in Cong.

With the support of well-known golfer Rory McIlroy a stunning new site near Lough Corrib has been purchased, planning permission granted and the building design completed.

Opening this centre will allow up to 1000 families to avail of therapeutic services where they can come and let their hearts, minds and bodies rest and heal.

Ballyvary Hurling Club is a juvenile club that has a mission of teaching values and culture of the game of hurling.

Faye Reilly is one of the club members and she recently completed a tough two and half years of treatment for leukemia.

On returning to play with the U7 age group she launched an upcoming virtual event for the club which will run over this June bank holiday weekend 5th -7th June 2021.

The club feel that Daisy lodge is the perfect fit to link in with their annual fundraiser.

It is a ‘ 5k to 10k’ Your way. – Walk, Run, Cycle, Climb, Swim! All funds will be split between the club and the charity.
