£5,045 donation to Daisy Hill Hospital Children’s Ward in Memory of Ciarán

The Caraher family from Cullyhanna have raised £5,045 for Daisy Hill Hospital Children’s Ward in memory of their son Ciarán who would have turned 21 in June.

The Carahers would like to express their heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped to organise a fantastic programme of events in Cullyhanna.

The Family Fun Weekend included a Tractor Run, a Country and Jiving night, a Family Fun day and Barbeque.

The Carahers have raised a total of £112,000 since Ciarán died in 1998 which they have donated to Meningitis Research and Daisy Hill Emergency Department.
