Cathaoirleach John CroweThe Cathaoirleach of Clare County Council has donated his Christmas Card allowance to four local organisations and charities.

Councillor John Crowe says he will this week present Cahercalla Hospice, the RNLI, Clarecastle Daycare Centre and Going Strong Sixmilebridge with cheques for €250 each.

He continued: “Cahercalla Hospice and Clarecastle Daycare Centre are hugely dependant on donations, as are the RNLI and Gong Strong Sixmilebridge. Volunteerism is also an integral part of their respective operations.
