Anyone going to Kildare games regularly will recognise photographer Adrian Melia - he of the long colourful scarves. Seems he has a very hard to treat form of cancer and is trying to raise funds for treatment. If anyone can help please consider doing so. See Go Fund Me link in attached article.

Fair play, Kildare365 and thanks for bringing my attention to it, being abroad had no idea. Great guy, always loved working with him in the Nationalist. Was forever in good form and damn fine photographer too. Hopefully we can get him to the 100k and wish for the best from there.

Just thinking as bank holiday back home, even those with little, if they could forgo a couple of pints and throw a tenner that way to get the ball rolling and those who can afford more, more power. Think of the horrible situation for him watching that ticker crawl up, let's make it move a little faster.

Just wondering whether the team / Co Board might come up with a challenge match that might be a fund-raiser for this very worthy and important cause?

A gentleman.
Kildare v kerry in o moore park, 27k capacity would raise a nice few pound.

Was hoping they would too, after all the work he's done at Kildare games over the years. Such a sad story. Hopefully he can get the help he needs.

Best of luck to him. Seems like a colourful guy. Testament to the man that he's still working away while going through chemo.

His website is well worth a visit, he's a great photographer.

Having worked with Adrian for many years I can honestly say that he is a total gentleman, incredibly friendly and in all the years I have known him I have never seen him angry. his positivity by working at Punchestown is no surprise, I really encourage people donate as much as they can.

We had a brilliant night, thanks a million, plenty raised. People can still bid for some items online over the next couple of days https://www.facebook.com/FriendsofAdrianMelia/

Adrian is heading to Germany on Sunday for treatment. That wouldn't be possible without the funds raised last night over the past month or so. People can still make a donation. Thanks.
