Reamonn is ‘hottest hunk’

MID Ulster’s Hottest Hunk is Cookstown lad Reamonn Gourley who wowed the crowds at the final at Sense nightclub.

The 28-year-old from Moveagh beat stiff competition from a rake of other lads at the charity event last Friday night.

Ten of Mid Ulster’s sexiest men took part in the bash to help raise cash for Charis Cancer Care.

Heats had been taking place in Mulligan’s Bar and Sense but the final 10 performed amazing party pieces at the special fund-raising night last Friday.

Hosted by Cookstown’s own Jimmy Cowan and stand-up comedy by Cormac Cookie O’Donnell, it had all been organised by local woman Heather Mulligan who is on a challenge to raise vital funds for Charis Integrated Cancer Care.

Heather said: “The boys were unreal. It was a fantastic night.”

Heather paid tribute to all the boys who performed and each of their sponsors who helped raise almost £3,500. She wants to say a big thank you to everyone who helped organise the event and sponsored money or contributed in any way.

Mum-of-four Heather has been personally affected by cancer and set herself the challenge to raise £20,000 within two months for the purpose-designed haven for cancer sufferers.

Heather’s eldest son Stephen was diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma aged just 17 and, while he has fully recovered, she knows the heartbreak of cancer. She also lost her own mother and brother-in-law to cancer.

This dynamic Cookstown woman has set herself November 5 as a deadline to raise £20,000 for Charis.

There has been a charity quiz night in Mulligan’s bar each Thursday night and another one is organised for tonight to help raise more cash for the cause.
