RAPHOE HOCKEY CLUB members will climb Errigal next Saturday to raise money for the Irish Hockey Team.
The Irish team are set to compete at this year’s Olympic Games in Rio.
It is the first time that an Irish hockey team has made the Olympics and they are the first Irish sports team since 1948 to achieve Olympic qualification.[adrotate group=”37″]
Hockey Ireland has estimated that it needs to raise €225,000 in order to prepare the team properly. The fundraising drive is detailed here – https://wwwpledgesports.org/projects/obsessed/
Now, Raphoe will lend their assistance.
Club members will scale all 751 metres of Errigal next Saturday, May 28. [adrotate group=”35″]

The cost is €10 for adults and €5 for under 18’s and there will be refreshments afterwards in The Rafters.[adrotate group=”46″] Tags:
