In 2020 little Milly Byrne was on the heart transplant journey and spent many months at Freeman Hospital, Newcastle. Her community at Magheracloone embarked on a fundraising drive for Heart Children Ireland’s Blue Ribbon Fund. This fund, which was started by Derek Moran and his family in memory of their Daughter Elaine, is restricted to families on the transplant journey. We are privileged to manage this Fund.
We were so happy to travel to Magheracloone GAA in Monaghan on a beautiful Bank Holiday Monday to meet Milly and her family. Milly is doing really well following her transplant. Their incredible fundraising efforts raised €194k for The Blue Ribbon Fund. Phenomenal! We are forever grateful and can, well into the future, continue to support our families as they embark on this journey. Our heartfelt thanks to everyone involved. What you have done is truly inspirational.
