The Grass Gals, an all-female silage cohort have raised over €14,000.

The Grass Gals, an all-female silage cohort have raised €14319.10 for Alzheimer Society of Ireland.

The DVD (priced at €20) and the calendar was launched by the group on Saturday December 16th last at Lismore Golf Club.

A crew of over forty females took to the fields of Waterford last August in a bid to set a new Guinness World Record, as part of the annual Mount Melleray Community Silage Weekend.

To coincide with the effort of the Silage-crew, The Socket Rockets, a team of lady mechanics also joined forces on the day.

The event organised by John O’Brien was well-attended and also garnered the attention of Mary Butler T.D.
