Amidst changing, postponed, cancelled fixtures and the overall uncertainty we are all facing, we wanted to bring you some good news.
Past President Paddy Boylan, his daughter Katie and dog Rocky just completed a 30k walk over 10 days in aid of Purple House Cancer support and raised €5k in the process! Katie was diagnosed with cancer a few years ago and found the support from Purple House invaluable during her recovery. Katie is thankfully now cancer free and while originally planned to do the Women’s Mini Marathon to raise funds, she was not deterred when it was cancelled and enlisted Paddy to the cause. Paddy wanted to thank all the Lansdowne members who supported them and said “Once again the members of Lansdowne have shown why it is a privilege to be part of such a wonderful Club. We are really appreciative of all the generosity shown. LFCTID”.
