The family and friends of the late Farranfore native, Jeremiah G. ‘Ger’ Coffey got together again on Sunday night in Sherwood’s Bar and Restaurant in the village.
They were there to finalise the business side of the golf fundraiser they held to mark the first anniversary of his death.
Proceeds of the Day
They invited the representatives of the Kerry/Cork Health Link Bus to attend on Sunday night so that they could present them with the proceeds of the day.
They presented Breda Dyland and Trish Kelly with a cheque for €2,800 for the service.
Killorglin Golf Club
The memorial event itself, Remembering Ger, was held at his old club, Killorglin Golf Club on Saturday February 25th.
The format was a four person, 12 hole scramble at a cost of €80 per team of four.
Participants were asked to wear something RED on the day to reflect Ger’s love of Liverpool FC and a prize presentation was held at Sherwood’s Bar that night.
Mike Sheehan, who made the presentation of the cheque on Sunday night was one of Ger’s great friends and he was also involved in the organisation of the big day.
All Went Well
When the cheque was presented on Sunday night, Mike was relieved that it all went well.
He would have joined his hands but one of them was full.
“Ger would be delighted with this now and to know that everything went off so well – thank God,” said Mike with a quick skyward glance and a jab of the pint hand in his friend’s direction.
