We have been absolutely blown away by the support that has come from the Eoghan Rua text donate campaign that's taken social media by storm. 

We want to say a massive thank you to everyone that has joined the campaign with their #GAAmemories and text to donate £2 to AWARE. 

The Eoghan Rua Facebook page has been lit up with comments from supporters all sharing their special #GAAmemories and following it up with a text donation of £2 to AWARE in Northern Ireland and €2 to Pieta House if you live in the Republic of Ireland. 

So far we are currently sitting at just over 1300 donations totaling a massive £3114.00 with this figure changing by the hour.

The money raised so far will pay for 200 young people to participate in a Mood Matters Young People programme. This programme gives young people the knowledge and skills which they can use to maintain good mental health and build resilience in order to better deal with problems and challenges.

The Eoghan Rua GAAmemories challenge is easy to get involved in. Head over to the Eoghan Rua Facebook page now or follow these simple instructions:

Share your GAA memory on Facebook, nominate and tag other friends to share their memory and text the appropriate number below to make your donation. 

From NI Text ‘ERUA01 £2’ to 70070 and 100% of the money goes directly to AWARE, standard network message fees may apply, please refer to your network operator’s standard rates. 

From ROI Text ‘GAAmemories’ to 50300 to donate €2 and 100% of the money goes directly to Pieta House across most network providers. Some providers apply VAT, which means a minimum of €1.63 will go to Pieta House.

Thank you once again to everyone that has supported the campaign. Please continue to spread the word and share your memories.
