Rain fails to pour cold water on Mountbolus Bog Bash

THE torrential rain may have hampered plans but it did not pour cold water on this year’s Mountbolus Bog Bash.

THE torrential rain may have hampered plans but it did not pour cold water on this year’s Mountbolus Bog Bash.

The event kicked off on Saturday night with Offaly GAA football legend Paddy McCormack ‘The Iron Man from Rhode’ entertaining attendees at the Mountain View. Mr McCormack gave a memorable talk, recalling tales of yesteryear, to an enthusiastic and capacity audience.

This was the fourth year of the event which is held to raise funds for St Luke’s Hospital. Without even taking into consideration funds raised from this year, the event has already raised €12,000 for the worthy cause.
