Over €1000 for the Tones in Drive-Thru Challenge



While the record number of cars through the Shannon Drive Thru remains intact and unbroken at 84 cars per hour, Sat April 4th still turned out to be a fruitful day for the Wolfe Tones GAA club who raised in excess of €1000 in 2 hours.


Between 2pm and 4pm on Sat April 4th, the club members attempted to break the McDonald’s Shannon Drive-Thru record. For every car that spent over €14 in the McDonald’s Shannon Drive-Thru between 2 and 4pm, McDonald’s Shannon made a donation to the Wolfe Tones GAA club of €10″.

“While we didn’t break the record on this occasion, it was a fun thing to do, and now that our members understand the concept, I have no doubt that the record of 84 cars per hour in the Shannon Drive Thru will not still standing this time next year, and we intend to raise even more needed funds”, said club PRO, Amanda Hogan.
