        Hello to you all from the Louth/Meath
           There are a number of people we
        need to thank for their continued
        support. Like all branches, without its
        members and volunteers, continuing
        as a branch would not be possible.
        Our fundraisers have been busy over
        the past few months and we would
        like to acknowledge the work of the
        following fundraisers over the past
        few months:-
           Christine Winters and the Bank of
        Ireland Drogheda Branch
           Our volunteers who ran in the
        Women’s Mini Marathon in Dublin.
           Dee Vintage Car Rally
           Jackie & Maura Callan, Wedding
        Anniversary Party
           We would also like to recognise the
        hard work of our volunteers during
        Organ Donor Awareness Week. Every
        year they give so freely of their time.
        Thanks to their generosity and the
        generosity of the local people we
        raised more than €16,000 during the
        week.                                 The branch will take a break for the Summer months and our next meeting
