At any one time Cuan Mhuire has 600 people in treatment through their nationwide centres in Bruree, Co. Limerick; Farnanes, Co. Cork; Athy, Co. Kildare; Coolarne, Co. Galway and Newry, Co. Down.
A registered charity (CHY6648), with full ISO 9001:2008 Certification, our philosophy believes the place and setting within which the programme is offered is just as important as the programme itself. Cuan Mhuire also provides life skills and personal development within the treatment programme.
The purpose of the event is to raise funds towards providing facilities for health and mental wellbeing both in our community and for Cuan Mhuire. On completion of the journey the team will present a signed hurley by the president of the GAA, Aogan O`Fearghail, to the staff of Cuan Mhuire, Coolarne, Athenry.
This fundraising initiative was brought about by two local residents of a small community in East Galway, Mullagh. In the spring of this year they set up a boot camp for the primary purpose of facilitating relatively young people (35+) who were no longer at an age for participating in local club sports such as hurling or football, but who still had a yearning for some form of sporting activity for their physical and mental well being.
