 Proceeds from annual Tony Smith Walk presented to Maynooth Senior Citizens

Kildare North Labour General Election Candidate Emmet Stagg and Cllr. Angela Feeney presented the proceeds of the Tony Smith Memorial Walk 2019, totalling €2,370, to Maynooth Senior Citizens Committee on Sunday June 16 at the Senior Citizens June Tea Dance at Maynooth GAA Club.

 

The Walk which was held on Sunday 28 April and is organised by Maynooth Labour Branch, is an annual event since 1979.

 

The Walk was named in honour of Tony Smith, who was treasurer of Maynooth Labour Branch and whose idea it was to hold an annual event for our Senior Citizens, when he passed away tragically at the young age of 33 in 1982.

 

"We would like to thank everybody who took part, all those who sponsored our walkers and the Management of Carton House for allowing us to use Carton Estate for the Walk," said the organisers.
