People of Buncrana Raise €7,600 for Richmond ITU & Raphaels Ward

In August 2016, Eoghan Mhic Dhonaill from Buncrana fell from a tree and suffered serious head injuries. Eoghan spent over a month in Beaumont Hospital - in Richmond ITU following surgery and then on St Raphael's children's ward where he continued his recovery.

Eoghan returned to school in November and continues on the road to recovery and will be starting secondary school in September. This year his mother Trina decided to get busy raising funds for the two units where Eoghan was treated. She and a group of friends organised a huge Bingo night which attracted people from across the Inishowen peninsula and they set up a charity shop in Buncrana which ran for several weeks. The fantastic result was a cheque for €7,600 to be split between Richmond ITU and St Raphael's Ward.

Enormous thanks to Trina and Tadhg, Elizabeth, Ronan and Rosie and we wish Eoghan continued good health.
