Eamonn & Mary Burke’s St. Stephen’s Day Charity Swim


When the rest of us are enjoying the relaxation of the Christmas and New Year periods, Eamonn & Mary Burke from Arklow have been busy organising their annual sponsored Swim to raise funds for the Liver Unit here in St. Vincent’s.

On St. Stephens Day 2018, the event achieved a new record for fundraising on the day, with a total of €6,030. Eamonn & Mary Burke, their family, friends and supporters have been one of our most successful fundraisers, with a total of circa €55,000 raised, some predating the establishment of St. Vincent’s Foundation in 2008.

 When Eamonn & Mary came to St. Vincent’s to present their fundraising proceeds, they had a tour of the new Liver Unit facilities in St. Brigid’s and saw at firsthand how this event and others make sure a difference to patient outcomes and patient comfort.

 Our sincere thanks to all concerned.

 See below photos of Eamonn & Mary Burke presenting their fundraising proceeds and also a selection of photos taken on the day of the Swim.
