A MAJOR new €12m centre to help make dreams come true for sick children is expected to be built in the midwest in the coming years.
The Share a Dream Foundation, a Limerick-based charity which makes dreams come true for sick children, carried forward a tax-free profit of €1.6m last year, the latest accounts reveal. The profit will now go towards the new holiday village and fun park for sick and disabled children from all over Ireland, the charity has confirmed.
The village, Dreamland, will include six holiday homes and will be the first of its kind in Europe, according to a spokeswoman. She said this had been "the dream" of founder Shay Kinsella for the past decade, and Share a Dream was in discussions with Limerick City Council about it.
The charity is also considering a "dream machine", a mobile vehicle designed to bring fun to sick children at home.
