One of the features of the Carrigaline 5 mile road race every year is that a percentage of the entry fee should go towards organisations in the community where the event is held. With just over 370 people taking part in the race last Sunday, nearly €800 was raised. The club made up the balance so there was a presentation of €400 going to Carrigaline Youth Drugs Initiative and €400 going to Carrigaline Meals on Wheels.
