Adam Burke Trust to benefit from Punchestown concert cash

The Adam Burke Trust was one of two local good causes which benefitted from last summer’s two-day festival, headlined by Tom Jones, at Punchestown last summer.

Young Two-Mile-House footballer Adam suffered a stroke while playing for his club last year, and funds are being raised towards his rehabilitation.

Adam was presented with a cheque for €2,500 by Punchestown General Manager Dick O’Sullivan, and Snowball Pearse.

The same amount was also presented to  the John Shortt Legends Day, an event run in memory of the late jockey, who lost his battle with cancer in October.

The money was donated as a result of the support of the local community in running the musical event.
