DARRAGH MURRAY SHAVES MULLET FOR CHARITIES
DARRAGH MURRAY made his first home start for the Connacht Senior team in the win against South African side Cell C Sharks in the BKT United Rugby Championship at Galway Sportsground on Saturday. The young Buccaneers player made his senior competitive debut away to Brive in the Challenge Cup recently and then teamed up in the second row with slightly elder brother Niall against Leinster at the RDS.
To mark his first home start, Darragh had his mullet shaved after the game by Roscommon hairdresser Siobhain Lyons (Curl Up & Dye), ably assisted by Darragh’s mum Bernie, dad Aidan and brother Niall. The now famous locks were donated to the Little Princess Trust while gofund.me pages are open for donations to his two preferred charities, the LauraLynn Foundation and the Roscommon/Mayo Hospice. Darragh’s aunt Maureen Kellehan (sister of his mother Bernie) passed away due to cancer last September, hence his choice of charities.
The South Roscommon 21-year-old’s noble gesture is certainly worthy of widespread support and donations can be made to the nominated charities as follows:-
Roscommon/Mayo Hospice https://gofund.me/2d6a11c2
LauraLynn Ireland’s Childrens Hospice https://www.idonate.ie/fundraiser/DarraghMurraysHairDonation
At time of writing €12,000 has been donated to the LauraLynn Foundation with a further €5,000 donated to the Roscommon/Mayo hospice. Fantastic amounts in so short a time and donations can be made until the end of March so your generosity is urged for these most worthwhile charities.
