CLARE’s first citizen is to make donations to two local organisations instead of sending Christmas cards this year.

Cathaoirleach of Clare County Council, Cllr PJ Ryan (IND) has made a Christmas donation of €350 to the Irish Red Cross Clare and Clare Cancer Support (Sláinte an Chláir).

“I am delighted to contribute my Christmas Card allowance to the fundraising efforts of these organisations as each of them contributes in a profound and meaningful way to the wellbeing of people in Clare,” Cllr Ryan stated.

Last year, Cllr Mary Howard (FG) who was Ryan’s predecessor offered to write a personal card or letter to individuals who were feeling isolated or lonely during the pandemic.
