Tara Mines Underground Electricians Cycle for Cancer Research in St. Vincent’s


We are very grateful to John Davey & colleagues underground electricians in Tara Mines. In memory of their late colleague and friend John Galvin, they organised a gruelling 80km Westport-Louisburg-Leenane-Westport fundraising cycle in County Mayo on the weekend of 27th June last. This is the second year they have undertaken a cycle, for Oncology Research in St. Vincent’s and a further event is planned for next year.

A magnificent total of €3,000 was raised from this year’s event.

We also wish to express our thanks to Eoghan O’Neill and all in Boliden Tara Mines who contributed to this outstanding result.

On behalf of our patients, we appreciate all associated with this wonderful initiative.

You can see photos below taken on the day.
