The Knockadoon Enhancement Project “Walk for Ella” last Sunday, 26 May was a resounding success. The event was in aid of Ladysbridge child, Ella Dempsey and her family as 8 year old Ella is currently undergoing cancer treatment. An amazing €3,572 was donated by participants who set off in glorious weather along the coastal route for the 5k walk. Speaking with Siobhán Shanahan, Secretary of the Knockadoon Enhancement Project, she said, “We were proud of the fantastic response from the local community who came along and supported Ella and her family. The weather was perfect and, with such a great cause to fight for, all support was gratefully received! Thank you so much to all who participated, donated and came along on the day.”
