Breakout For Hospice was a resounding success, raising over €12,000 for Mayo Roscommmon Hospice Foundation.

The event, which saw the Prison Service and Gardai in Castlerea come together to organise a charity cycle and GAA challenge game on the Easter Bank Holiday Weekend, raised €12,163.

The cheque presentation took place on Friday afternoon last at the Hospice Shop in Castlerea.

It is hoped the event will be staged again next year, with details to be confirmed very soon.

Representatives from the Prison Service, Castlerea Gardai and Harmac, who sponsored the event, were all present for the big reveal.
