Thanking all those who sponsored him Roy who has been involved as a Volunteer  with Cuan Mhuire for many years stated "Cuan Mhuire is Ireland’s largest voluntary provider of Addiction Treatment Services and Residential Rehabilitation. Many thousands of people like myself have availed of the services of Cuan Mhuire and turned our lives around. All monies raised go to ensuring that Sr Consilio and Cuan Mhuire can continue to provide their life saving  and changing  support for individuals and families affected by addictions"

Roy's long time friend Pat McGinn was on hand give him support and 'shaving instructions' as he concluded his fund raising exploit. 

Praising the Camlough mans efforts, Pat  said "Roy is a great example, a day at a time, of the work of Sr Consilio and Cuan Mhuire. For many years now he has raised much needed funds and helps and supports the ongoing work of Cuan Mhuire as a volunteer.

"He, myself and many others are also involved in the "Friends of Cuan Mhuire" groups of  ordinary people who come together to support& help each other on our journey of recovery. Every town in Ireland is impacted by addiction, the Recovery Program is only half the battle. Remaining in recovery, day by day, can be a challenge and people need a lot of encouragement and support and the Friends of Cuan Mhuire are there where possible,  to give just that".
