Tralee 80’s Disco Fundraiser for Pancreas Transplant


On Friday 10th March last in the Rose Hotel, Tralee an 80’s Disco Fundraiser was held in support of the Pancreas Transplant Unit in St. Vincent’s University Hospital. This event was organised by the Quirke family in collaboration with Anthony O’Connor. Joseph Quirke was the beneficially of a pancreas transplant in recent times, and thankfully, has made fantastic progress.

The “80’s” raised the wonderful total of €6,700 which will be a fantastic enhancement to the transplant programme. Joseph Quirke recently presented the proceeds to Mr. Tom Gallagher, Pancreas Transplant Surgeon
