Kildare Hurlers Raise €8k For 'Roar For Ruairi' Campaign

Kildare Hurlers Raise €8k For 'Roar For Ruairi' Campaign
By PJ Browne

The Kildare senior and minor hurlers completed a 40-hour run on Sunday morning to raise funds for the 'Roar for Ruairi' campaign.

Ruairi McDonnell is a six-year-old boy from Clane with a rare and terminal neurological illness. The campaign will help the family make renovations allowing them to take care of Ruairi at home.

The hurlers' run - which also included backroom team members - began at 6pm on Friday and concluded this morning.

Senior hurling manager David Herity - a Kilkenny All-Ireland winning goalkeeper - took the 2am to 3am leg near his home in Kells.

Brian Byrne, the Kildare captain, brought home the anchor leg.

The target for the run was €4,000 but nearly double that has been raised so far.
