Duck Push 2021 - Clongowes Wood College

Posted: 12th March 2021

Clongowes Duck Push 2021 is the continuation of a 27-year long tradition of fundraising by the Transition Year students at Clongowes. The boys aim to raise funds for Crumlin Children’s Hospital in the spirit of ‘Kids Helping Kids’.

The Duck Push are delighted to announce that this year we have set a target of €40,000 to raise. With nationwide restrictions severely limiting our ability to fundraise we need your support this year more than ever.  

The funds will help purchase an item of equipment that will help doctors to identify and diagnose respiratory viruses more quickly and more accurately – as you can imagine this is somewhat critical as our country battles with the COVID-19. 

The piece of equipment is known as the GAP 21-84 Luminex Magpix, for extended respiratory virus testing. 

In the coming weeks will be announcing various fundraising events and initiatives through our DuckPush webpage (, but for the moment we will focus on our GoFundMe Page ( All donations no matter how small are greatly appreciated. Please give what you can, and be sure to share the link with others.


Working alone we can make a difference. 

Working together we can achieve more. 

With you, we can reach our target. 


Thank you, 

Clongowes Duck Push 2021
