Shave or Dye ‘Hoolie for Cathail’ set to take place this weekend

Mountmellick Central Hub are set to present their first in-person event in almost two years this weekend – and all for a brilliant cause.

Cathail Dooley is a four-year-old boy from The Rock who was recently diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukaemia.

The Rock GAA club and Mountmellick teenager Dillon Payne have both completed fundraisers that have generated almost €30,000 between them.

And Saturday August 14 is the turn of Mountmellick Central Hub to do their bit to help Cathail and his family.

Hoolie for Cathail’ will take place in the car park of Lalors Bar Mountmellick at 7.30pm.

There will be a collection and raffle on the night with great prizes, an auction and music by JL Sound and Dooley Brothers.

All funds raised to go to Cathail’s medical bills

All set to shave or dye are Lorna Holohan Garry, Jason McInerney, Conor Holohan, Cillian Fitzpatrick, Martina Kelly and Colleen Kelly. While Cormac and Alex Melia have already taken the plunge and dyed their hairs.

Organiser Jason McInerney said: “It’s set to be a special evening and we hope you can make it get down early to avoid disappointment because once we reach capacity, gates close.

“Parking is located 30 meters next door while full public health guidelines, security and safety procedures are in place.

“Vaccine certs will be required for entry to main bar.

“We hope to see you all there Saturday evening – bring on the Music.”
