This ribbon will be on-sale all over Sligo in selected outlets and will sold on the streets in the weeks coming up to St. Patricks Day.  Each ribbon will cost €2.  The proceeds will be split with the Ladies association and with The Carers Association.   All clubs have been given there portion of Ribbons for 2013 to sell and they will be actively selling them over the coming weeks, so your support will be greatly appreciated.
