Chuckles for Charlie

Please lend your support for this gala evening in aid of Temple Street Hospital, writes @ccbooms

Last year Ireland's Six Nations wasn't great. We all know it, we all kind of accept it at this stage. And lots of people have come up with lots of reasons why. One I heard was that the team just didn't do enough.

But in spite of that we cheered and encouraged that team and we appreciate the work they did and support them in spite of it.

I know of one team that does do enough, day in and day out, for hundreds of people and that's the team at Temple Street Hospital.

This Friday night, there's a comedy night being held in the Noggin Inn in Sallynoggin. It's in honor of Charlie Breen, who, at only 9 months old, passed from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (S.I.D.S.).

Temple Street Childrens Hospital helped Charlie's family more than they could comprehend at the time, and they would like to thank them by helping them help others in similar situations.

Lots of comedians are giving their time to this and there's an incredible list of take and auction prizes on the night.

But one auction prize that might interest you, and this is my reason for posting, is an Ireland rugby jersey, signed by the Six Nations squad from last season. And it's available to be bid on right now!

If anyone is interested, it can be viewed right now on https://www.facebook.com/ChucklesForCharlie and if you'd like to get your hands on it, just pm a bid to them or text Tanya or Damian now on 085 8891122 or 087 9981056

And sure if you're at a loose end on Friday it might not be a bad way to spend an evening!
