Suzanne Holligan Memorial Walk for St Vincent’s and Tallaght Hospitals


Suzanne Holligan was a young Garda working in Greystones when she died from cancer, in August 2019, at just 35 years. In a most generous gesture, her grieving family and friends sought to have other cancer patients benefit. On Saturday, September 12th 2020 they organised a 10km walk in Glendalough National Park. 50 people turned out for the walk.

Cancer/ Oncology care here in St. Vincent’s benefitted to the extent of €10,000 from this wonderful fundraising.

We are deeply indebted to Suzanne’s parents, Tom and Nuala, her partner Dave and son Rian, and all their family and friends for this wonderful kindness at such a sad time for them.

Suzanne’s Garda colleagues were most supportive and we are grateful to them also. Additionally we want to thank AMES, Athy for their sponsorship.
