In memory of Colm Donnelly – fundraising for I.C.U. in St. Vincent’s
Following the tragic death of 18 year old Colm Donnelly from County Wexford in February 2023, his bereaved family donated a most generous sum of €20,000 to the Intensive Care Unit in St. Vincent’s.
These funds came from a variety of supports.
As well as requesting donations to I.C.U. in lieu of funeral flowers, the extended Donnelly family also organised a fundraising evening and a Tractor Run on 23rd April. The latter raised a total of €57,507.41, supporting four organisations close to the late Colm’s heart – the Intensive Care Unit in St. Vincent’s University Hospital; the Friends of Gorey District Hospital, Gorey Community School and Kilanerin National School.
The capacity of St. Vincent’s I.C.U. will be greatly enhanced by the €20,000 contribution. We are enormously grateful to Colm’s family for this extraordinary generosity in the most painful of circumstance for them.
