Thank you to all who supported our Cycleton in the Market Yard in Carrick-on-Shannon and the Dragon Boat Race which took place on 8th May, 2016 two very successful events and we are very grateful for your support.


 Upcoming events

Carrick-on-Shannon Rugby Club are holding a Dinner Dance in June in the Bush Hotel and they are donating some of the proceeds to Respite.

The August Bank Holiday weekend in Killclare will be busy with A Race Night scheduled for Saturday night and a Family Fun Day will also be held – more details to follow.





A meeting was held on Wednesday 25th November, 2015 in St. Ciarans and it was very encouraging to see a great attendance with such enthusiasm.  To date there is €215,000.00 in the kitty for the Respite Project and it was suggested that a target thermometer would be displayed in the grounds of St. Ciarans to show the public how well this fundraising committee is progressing.

A Board member is continuing to source sites that may be appropriate for this purpose built premises.

Further events were planned, please check out the St. Ciarans web site for upcoming events.

Thank you to all who have organised or helped out in any way with past events and we look forward to your support in the future.


Well done to all who helped out in any way.  A marvellous achievement!!
