Friday Flashback: Digging deep for People in Need

IT raised millions of euro for a great cause and Killarney certainly played its part.

The People in Need Telethon on 21 May 2004 prompted men, women and children in every town and village of the county to get involved in the nationwide fundraising initiative and to dig deep for some very deserving charities and organisations.

And, as this Friday Flashback highlights, the parish of Kilcummin wasn’t found wanting as the local day care centre organised a series of cash collecting initiatives to show they cared.

The Telethon was the talk of the country and a special television programme, hosted by Gay Byrne, Ryan Tubridy, Gerry Ryan and Dustin the Turkey, monitored the great effort around the country.
