*Thanks to the businesses in Carrickmacross, Castleblayney and Ardee and in particular to Cllr Colm Carthy, who pulled it all together, for the fundraising which is in an around the €5000 mark.
*Monaghan County Council have been a huge help, donating large numbers of acetates, a large financial boost and sourcing additional 3D printers from their libraries and a grant of €1,000 for matierials.
*Cavan Monaghan ETB have played a quiet role, however Paddy Flood donated 11 3D printers which worked non-stop for 8 weeks and the 26 PLA spools to print the visors when they could not be sourced anywhere in Ireland or abroad. 
*Averil Hayes with her eagle eyes for sourcing acetates in the Cavan office when we were really short of them.
*Benchspace Ireland for their initial support in this project.
*Zurich Insurance for their donation of raw materials to supply Nursing Homes.
*Kingspan for the additional printing of 3D visor frames.
*Patricia Fenix for the cakes.
 
Thanks to our committed and expert staff: Ciaran Callaghan, Brendan Duff, Ryan Connolly and Darren Smith.  No one but these gentlemen know of the car journeys for pick-ups, the countless watching of 3D printers or laser cutters, the drilling or punching of acetate sheets, the electricity bills, the cleaning of the 3D frames, the peeling of the laser cut frames and the hum of the machines.
 
We are eternally grateful for all your time, effort and donations.
 
There are people alive in our communities as a result of what you have done and you should be proud of your achievements.
