Plunketts & Pieta House - Darkness into Light 2017 - Thanks
Wed, 10 May 2017
A big thank you to all the Plunketts members who took part in the Darkness into Light event #DIL2017 in the Phoenix Park last Saturday morning. As a result of our involvement this year, we have raised €1,715 for Pieta House.  This is our third year supporting this event.

The morning itself was beautiful and mild, and it was uplifting to be part of such an event at day break. Afterwards, all sections of the club membership were present in the Clubhouse for breakfast.  It was a real community event. 

Special thanks to Roger O'Connor for supplying sausages, to the Phoenix Bakery on Baggott Road, SuperValu in Rathborne, Hanna LoughnaneTrish Maher and Martina Carroll for sponsoring / baking items for the breakfast. Special mention to Joan Voakes who prepared the Clubhouse the night before and cooking the breakfast items.  

Thanks too to the U/10 mentors - Keith Merton, David McGeown, Jimmy Collins, Conor McCague, Derek Hughes for their cooking skills and for helping with the running of the event on Saturday morning.

Keep an eye out for more Health & Wellbeing team initiatives to promote a positive mental health message within the Club and in the wider Community. We would like to draw your attention to the Pieta House - Know the Signs Campaign: http://www.pieta.ie/blog/spot-the-signs-save-a-life

See you all again next year

Pieta House - Darkness Into Light - will you join the Plunkett's group in the Phoenix Park?
Sun, 23 Apr 2017
Plunketts are supporting the Pieta House Darkness Into Light event on the 6th of May.

Following on from our successful events over the last two years, Plunkett's are again supporting the Pieta House - Darkness Into Light Event in the Phoenix Park on Saturday morning - 6th of May.  We need your support for this great event.  

Will you join us in the Phoenix Park to complete the event and then return to the Clubhouse for some breakfast afterwards.  

As part of the Mind Ur Buddy programme, Plunkett's have been building close ties with Pieta House to promote a positive mental health message within the Club and the wider community. This is a great opportunity to have that conversation with your son, daughter, brother, sister, parent, relative, teammate or friend that you are there for them in times of need.  Why not, make the effort to walk with us.
