All cheery in Glynn

CONOR CULLEN

RASHERS and sausages were sizzling in Glynn Hall once again on Sunday morning as the community came out in force for the Cheerios Childline Breakfast Morning.

It was the ninth annual breakfast morning held in aid of Childline and once again it was a great success.

'I'd say we served over 400 breakfasts and we raised €2,800 for Childline,' said Marian Morrissey, who was delighted with how well everything went on Sunday. 'It was very well supported and we got great help from the local children,' she added.

People who came along for breakfast were not disappointed with the spread on offer, from the hearty full Irish to the healthier options, along with a selection of tea, coffee and juices.

The two chefs for the morning were John McClean and 'Pips' Dempsey, who did a great job.

This year, for the first time, the ISPCC were represented at the fundraiser and Marian was happy to report that Regional Fundraiser Donal Barrett rolled his sleeves up and got stuck in too.

Local businesses were also very supportive of the event and kindly donated food, a lot of which was sourced by Joe Wogan.

The €2,800 raised on Sunday means that the generous Glynn folk are now closing in on a total of €60,000 raised for Childline, a figure they are hoping to surpass at the tenth Cheerios Childline Breakfast Morning next year.
