Generous local David Monaghan got on his bike for a good cause when he pedalled 50 km in aid of Our Lady of Fatima Special School.
The Carrig on Bannow native teamed up with 13 friends for a sponsored cycle around the Wexford region. Although they battled difficult terrain and windy conditions, their efforts certainly paid off. The team raised €2056 which they recently presented to school Principal Ritta Waters.
'We were all delighted with the fantastic donation,' said school secretary Jennifer Nieland. 'Schools are always in need of a little bit extra. DOnations like this help to provide important things for children.'
David presented the cheque along with his partner Lillian Woolley, whose child attends Our Lady of Fatima School.
