Clontibret Pipe Band recently held a dedication night for their founding member Kenny Graham who had passed away a few years ago. On the dedication night they formally renamed the band, in his memory, as Graham Memorial Clontibret Pipe Band. There is a particularly strong connection between the Band members and St. Vincent’s Liver Unit. Adrian Jebb, who had a successful liver transplant in 2005, is a very active member, together with his family. Kenny Graham had previously fundraised very successfully for St. Vincent’s Liver Unit.
On the dedication night, the band took up a collection to be shared equally between Cavan Monaghan Palliative Care and also the Liver Unit in St. Vincent’s. From the total raised of €1,200, we are delighted to acknowledge receipt of €600 for St. Brigid’s Ward in the Liver Unit. Our thanks to all concerned for their generosity to St. Vincent’s.
