Just a week gone and all ready Jarlath Geraghty has a head start in Castlerea Celtic’s Movember Challenge. Also pictured are Niall Higgins, Paul Neary, Nathan Bligh, Jack Higgins and Martin Hrzenjak.

Castlerea Celtic has launched a Movember fundraising campaign to raise awareness of suicide and self-harm prevention in young men.

All monies raised by Castlerea Celtic will be donated to Pieta House. Pieta House works tirelessly to provide a free therapeutic approach to people who are in suicidal distress and those who engage in self-harm.

The campaign was the brainchild of members of the club’s senior A and B squads but was quickly supported by the Masters’ side as well as members of the youths squad and club committee.

“We as a group of players believe by raising awareness in our town and wider community we might just help someone in their time of need and who better to partner with but Pieta House,” said a club spokesperson.

The campaign was launched in The Cosy Bar, Castlerea last week with the ‘’Shave Night’’ taking place on November 30th in McGourty’s Bar. The club would like to thank Paul Neary of Paul’s Barbers for getting the squad ready for the campaign.

Everyone is invited to join in to make the campaign a success and come on out and support the Shave Night’ in McGourty’s Bar. “So ladies please allow your gentlemen put down their razors and grow a Mo to save Bro,” concluded the club spokesperson.
