Galway Corinthians RFC are raising money to benefit Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA) after former player, coach and President Paddy Flynn was diagnosed with MND late last year.
The club held a special legends game on Saturday against Galwegians RFC to raise funds, and the club has received around €3,000 so far in donations for the IMNDA through a GoFundMe campaign.
The Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA) is the only organisation of its kind in Ireland providing specialised services to families affected by this terminal condition.
The Association cannot slow the progression of MND or change the outcome, but it can alleviate the feelings of isolation and frustration.
The IMNDA offers vital services and support to approximately 400 families across Ireland who would otherwise have nowhere else to turn.
