About: Beat on the Street Banagher will be held in memory of Pam Regan (nee Coughlan) RIP, who was just 50 years of age when she passed away, had dreams of having a music festival in her home town of Banagher and the organisers are continuing with “Pam’s Dream.” Pam died in 2018 from Cancer. She was diagnosed almost 10 years previously and she fought with tooth and nail to beat this horrendous disease, but sadly she lost her battle in May 2018, surrounded at home by Patrick (Dilly), and their three young sons Jack, Luis & Alex and her parents, sisters, large circle of family and friends. Beat on the Street 2022 is a one day event on the street in Banagher, a community day with something for everyone on offer. Pam loved children, she was a child minder for lots of families over the years, she was an avid supporter of St Rynagh’s and Banagher United, as her nephews Matthew & Daniel Maloney are players along with her own sons Jack, Luis & Alex. They wanted to involve all aspects of Pam’s life on the day and make it a family day. They have organised a Children’s entertainment in the square area; Puck a ball in the bin; Penalty Shootout; Crossbar Challenge; Hang Tough and a few other games and fun areas. There will be a number of donation buckets in the businesses around the town for anyone that may not be available on the day to attend the event but would like to contribute to the recipients. The funds this year will be divided evenly between the following; East Galway and Midlands cancer support in Ballinasloe; Banagher branch of Birr Mental Health group and the Bereavement group of Banagher community centre. East Galway and Midlands cancer support centre in Brackernagh, Ballinasloe s voluntary run and was extraordinary support to Pam and her family during her final few months and in particular in her final few days and hours.
