Three Hooves for Hospice animals from neighbouring farms in Derrinboy, Kilcormac , Co. Offaly were sold at the Golden Vale Mart in Tullamore at the end of February for €4,800. Farmers, Mr. Joe Deegan, Mr. Aidan Gath and Mr. Joe Molloy very kindly reared the animals and donated the proceeds of the sale towards the cost of building the planned Midland Regional Hospice. The sale price reflected the great job the three farmers concerned did in rearing the animals that were sold..

The Hooves 4 Hospice team wishes to thank most sincerely G V Mart, Tullamore, the farmers who reared the animals and the purchasers who valued the animals so highly.
