The St Iberius Four-Day Fast may have ended in December, but that didn't stop the funds rolling in for the six worthy causes.

Despite initial predictions that the total raised would be lower this year, Rev Arthur Minion and Fr Aodhán Marken managed to surpass all expectations by pulling in €49,051.

Harsh weather conditions made the four-day fundraiser challenging for them when they began the fast on Sunday December 20. However, the determined pair braved the cold and surpassed last year's total by almost €4000.

The recipients of the funds were Wexford Women's Refuge (€7000), Wexford Hospice Homecare (€7000), Irish Cancer Research (€2051), St Vincent de Paul (€20000), Ozanam House (€7000), and Irish Flood Victims (€5000).
