Islandeady scale heights

It is literally a very, very tall challenge. Two hostesses from Islandeady No Name Club will climb the highest mountain in Africa this month to raise money for a number of local charities. Jacinta Walsh and Elana Allen will scale the 6,000 metre mountain in Tanzania and in doing so raise valuable funds for Mayo Autism Action, Mayo Roscommon Hospice, Mayo Society for the Prevention of Cruelty for Animals, Mayo Cystic Fibrosis, and Western Respite Care. Months of preparation will come to fruition when the two club members embark on their journey.

The activities of Jacinta and Elana are reflective of what have been a busy year for the Mayo club. It has grown from strength-to-strength since it was established four years ago and now has 15 hostesses and is an integral part of the County Mayo community.

Indeed the people of Islandeady have been the beneficiaries of the community spirit of the No Name Club.

The local senior citizens group has been provided with support by the club for its days out and afternoon tea parties and the community council’s clean-up days have seen the hostesses out giving a helping hand.

The club is organising a youth Mass in the community in the coming weeks to mark the end of what has been a very successful year and is also planning to make a presentation to its most famous citizen, Taoiseach Enda Kenny, to mark his election to head of Government.

In April, Islandeady participated in Westport No Name Club’s Newport-Mulranny Railway Walk to raise funds for the Irish Kidney Association and hopes to repeat the journey in the coming weeks by bike. It recently enjoyed success in Supertalent 2011 when hostess Caren Kirby reached the Irish Trad Dancing final and another member, Aishling Cawley, was a winner in the No Name Club/Road Safety Authority road safety competitions.

The club would like to thank the hostesses, its adult leaders and all the people who have supported it over the past nine months. These people’s time and generosity helped make it a very succesful year for Islandeady No Name Club.
