The friends and family of the late Martin (Mansie) Hanley are holding a fundraiser for the fight against heart disease and strokes.

This fundraiser is in memory of Martin (Mansie) Hanley who played a large part in the local GAA as a committee member as well as having played hurling for Carnmore and football for Claregalway. Martin sadly passed away in September 2012 due to a heart attack.

The fundraiser will take place on May 1st and as Martin was heavily involved in the GAA scene the events taking place in his memory will be an Over-40s hurling 7s tournament and Over-30s 7s Camogie tournament at 2pm in Carnmore Hurling Club with the Martin Hanley memorial cup being awarded to the winning teams.

Later that night Claregalway Hotel will host a night of laughs, music and entertainment. The night will include a number of local entertainment acts including music by Ken and Steve, followed by DJ. Free finger food will also be provided.

Aside from the hurling a tree planting at Carnmore pitch as well as a barbeque will also be taking place on Saturday and you can bring your kids as well as there’s games to keep them busy.

All funds raised will go to Croí to help fight heart disease and strokes.
