Limerick Camogie Going Solo To Raise Funds For Focus Ireland

On the weekend of March 19-22nd, Limerick Camogie is soloing across Limerick, within the 5km limit, supporting Focus Ireland and the players training fund and showcasing the best of what Limerick City & County has to offer. Players from the County u14 team to Senior team, will get out in their green of Limerick and solo for Focus Ireland. 

Limerick Camogie are encouraging people to donate via (link) to assist in Focus Ireland’s vital work helping the 220 people homeless in Limerick as well as the 8,313 nationwide. 

In addition to fundraising for Focus Ireland, Limerick camogie players will share their posts on social media using the hashtag #Limerickcamogie4focus, while nominating four friends to donate and raise awareness. 

Like all charities, Focus Ireland have been hit by COVID-19 and have had to cancel key fundraising events due to the restrictions and appreciate the help of Limerick Camogie players. 

Fundraising, Marketing & Events Executive with Focus Ireland Aoife Sheehan said: “It is with support from community events like this that Focus Ireland is able to continue their vital work in challenging homelessness and changing lives. We are very grateful for the support of Limerick camogie during this difficult time. I want to especially express gratitude to all the players who will showcase their soloing skills and raising money for our crucial work.” 

Limerick Camogie Chairperson Grace McNamara said: “We are all at home a lot more, now, more than ever, we appreciate having a roof over our head. We are supporting Focus Ireland this March, to help people experiencing homeless. Like other camogie players across the country, Limerick players are training individually at the moment and we identified this as a good time to give something back.”

The public are encouraged to get active, get involved by walking, soloing or jogging on the weekend of the 19th of March and share their pictures of their locality on social media using the #limerickcamogie4focus. 

Focus Ireland works with people who are homeless or at risk of losing their homes across Ireland. We are driven by the fundamental belief that homelessness is wrong. Wrong because it is a failure of society that creates victims out of ordinary people and robs them of their potential. Wrong because it can be prevented, it can be solved but is allowed to continue and in doing so, undermines society.
