📍Welcome to the Clonea Long Puck Facebook Page!*PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF DATE AND TIME* to Saturday, November 12th '22 @ 11amStay tuned for event updates! (including raffle and auction prizes up for grabs on the night of the Clonea Long Puck in Clancy’s Bar)The 'Clonea Long Puck' 2022 is in aid of the 'Billy Behan House Adaptation Fund'. Please read the following for details ➡️ Billy and Patsy Behan have lived in Clodagh Drive, Clonea Power, Co. Waterford, for the past 40+ years. Both Billy and Patsy have been active members of our community and parish. Diagnosed with diabetes at 21 years old, Billy has lived and managed his diabetes for 47 years, and has taken every hurdle in his stride.In 2018, after 40+ years, his diabetes started to take its toll on Billy’s body. Following on from some hard times, in February 2022, the difficult decision was made to amputate Billy’s left leg for both his health and well-being. The decision was not done lightly or easily and has impacted on both Billy and Patsy’s quality of life greatly. After 14 hard weeks, Billy returned home to Clonea, where the full impact of his health on his life became a reality.Billy’s family home in Clonea will now require major adaptation and wheelchair accessibility to suit his needs. The house in its current layout and structure is not suitable for Billy to live the independent life that ha has always enjoyed and wishes to have again. The recommendations for the house’s adaptations have come from Billy’s occupational health team in Cashel. They have recommended a bathroom extension, a wet room and multiple access ramps to facilitate a wheelchair.A Waterford County Council housing adaptation grant was approved in May towards the cost of the work. However, with the huge rise in the cost of building materials, the family will be left with a shortfall of €45,000. The family have been informed they now have six months to complete the works.All proceeds made from this event will go directly to the ‘Billy Behan House Adaptation Fund’ fundraising campaign, while Clonea GAA have kindly sponsored all of the prizes for each of the long puck category winners. ...
