St. Anthony's special school held their now annual Trolley Dash in SuperValu Castlebar on Sunday 18 December where the winner Mary Murray from Mulranny sped around with her Trolley and came away with one €150 worth of goodies just in time for Christmas. The turkey and ham are sorted!

St. Anthony's school would like to thank everyone who supported the trolley dash by buying lines for the draw. There were lots of other prizes and the winners have collected them from the school. Huge thanks to organiser Mary Murray (no relation to winner) and Karen McGuire and to SuperValu Castlebar who accommodate the trolley dash every year.

Funds raised from the trolley dash go towards providing resources for the children attending St. Anthony's School and this year the goal is to get a new wheelchair school bus so the children can be brought on various activities such as bowling, swimming, library, museum and sports events. The school welcomes all donations and appreciates the support given from the local community. Should anyone wish to contribute to a worthy cause please contact the school at
