Signage rental auction for this year makes €1,000.

Redcastle Oceanfront Golf and Spa were the successful bidders for the signage this year.

Thank you to all local businesses who bid in the process. We were overwhelmed by the response. 

Next year in Jan 2018 we will take expressions of interest for the sign and bid during the first weeks in Feb for erection of sign in March at the latest. 

Thank you again to all and especially to Redcastle Oceanfront Golf and Spa for a nice round figure to start off our fundraising year for 2017. 

Sign is updated regularly with Redcastle Hotel’s events and promotions. Thrilled to see it changing with the seasons and knowing the funds add to Victoria’s legacy.

Congratulations to Aishling Devitt and Anne Browne who were selected to recieve the scholarship from the first ever children’s palliative care and complex care course in the country.

Our aim is to highlight the need for more paediatric palliative care nurses and services nationally.

We are deeply honoured that Tommy Tiernan attended and launched our initative.

Thank you to all in NUIG especially the nurses who are teaching and studying to provide care for our most vulnerable children. A huge amount of appreciation to Claire Quinn course director for all of her support and encouragement.

It was a special occasion. #Victoriamagic lives on. More interesting news to follow.
