As part of the ‘Rearing 4 Rickie’ project organised by Kanturk Co-operative Mart, in conjunction with the Rickie Healy Appeal, an auction event will take place on Friday night, March 23, 2018, in Kanturk Mart’s premises.
The mart’s auctioneers and staff will auction off more than 50 weanlings, and a variety of other auction items, with all proceeds from the night going to the Rickie Healy Appeal.
Rickie Healy of Crossfield, Ballyclough, Mallow, suffered serious spinal injuries in a tragic swimming accident whilst on holidays with friends in July 2017. Rickie is currently in the National Rehabilitation Hospital in Dun Laoghaire commencing his rehabilitation.
The Rickie Healy Appeal has been set up by a cross section of Rickie’s friends and family to raise money in order to ensure Rickie gets the best treatment available and give him the best quality of life going forward.
Organisers expect more than 50 cattle to be sold at the ‘Rearing 4 Rickie’ fundraising event.
