Eamonn & Mary Burke’s Annual New Year’s Day Swim for the Liver Unit


Every New Year’s Day for many years, Eamonn & Mary Burke from Arklow have organised a sponsored Swim to raise funds for the Liver Unit in St. Vincent’s Hospital.  Each year the support has grown, which reflects the enormous work contributed and also the esteem with which they are regarded within the local community.

This year, 2017, the event raised a further terrific total of €4,550 and brings to almost €39,000 the cumulative contribution from this wonderful activity.

We are indebted to all concerned and particularly to Eamonn & Mary – great friends of St. Vincent’s.
