Their efforts ensured that the auction reached its fundraising goals.

Kieran O’Connor extended his heartfelt appreciation to the WLR staff and Tirlán for their commitment to making a positive impact in the community.

Special recognition is also due to Lisa Curran at Countrylife for her invaluable assistance and to Glanbia’s June White for her administrative support throughout the auction.
