Vintage Club raised €20,000 for Motor Neurone research

Sunday, September 9th was an historic day in the history of Dromintee GAC with the holding of our first Vintage Day. The event proved to be more successful than anyone could have imagined. Already over €20,000 has been raised with donations continuing to pour in. The club will be holding a Cheque Presentation Night on Saturday, November 3rd at 9pm. We are delighted to announce that our Special Guest on the evening will be Professor Orla Hardiman of Trinity College, Dublin and the Beaumonut Hospital. Orla Hardiman is an Irish consultant neurologist. She is a HRB Clinician Scientist, Clinical Professor of Neurology at the University of Dublin and a Consultant Neurologist at the National Neuroscience Center of Ireland at Beaumont Hospital, Dublin. Professor Hardiman has become a prominent advocate for neurological patients in Ireland, and for patients within the Irish health system generally. She is co-Founder of the Neurological Alliance of Ireland, and Doctors Alliance for Better Public Healthcare. Professor Hardiman is current Dean of the Irish Institute of Clinical Neuroscience. In the past, she established the bi-annual Diaspora Meeting, a forum for Irish neurologists based overseas to present and discuss their research findings with neurologists working in Ireland. We would like to invite all our volunteers, exhibitors and patrons to come along on the evening and share in the distribution of the fruits of all our labours.
