About Drive to Survive (www.drivetosurvive.ie): Drive to Survive (The John Gallahue Galtee Mountain Boy Trust Fund for Cancer Care Ltd) is a limited not for profit company and charity (no. CHY 20452) established in 2012 by a group of local Munster volunteers, to honour the memory and the lifetime achievement of John Gallahue, a much admired poet, singer, raconteur and politician. As a Limerick County Counselor, John strived diligently to bring prosperity to the area.
In 2011, John Gallahue sadly passed away after a long fight with Cancer. It was his greatest wish to establish a national charity that would travel through Ireland to raise funds for cancer care. The Drive to survive campaign will honour his memory and see his wish become a reality. The Drive to Survive team of volunteers raised in excess of €140,000 during their fundraising efforts during 2013. This monies were collected during a week-long fundraising trip throughout the 26 counties of Ireland on two Model T cars and a band of volunteers and a host of standalone events that took place during the year. All monies collected within an area were allocated to the local hospice.
