Following an extremely successful Pub Quiz hosted by the Carrickdale Hotel that raised over €4,000, a Golf Tournament hosted by Dundalk Golf Club raised an amazing €4,325 and an Afternoon Tea Event hosted by Fionnuala's wonderful colleagues in Hospitality at Dundalk Institute of Technology raised €4,360, together with the many personal donations received, the Dullaghan family were able to hand over a cheque totalling €16,700 to the KBRT (Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust) in memory of their son John who died suddenly in Boston in March last.
The KBRT was set up by Colin and Eithne Bell, whose son Kevin was tragically killed in a traffic accident in New York one year ago this month.
The Trust aims at relieving the financial hardship of bereaved families repatriating the body(ies) of loved one(s) who have died abroad in sudden or tragic circumstances back to Ireland.
John's parents, Paddy and Fionnuala and their family would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the overwhelming goodwill and generosity of all, too numerous to mention, who supported them in any way during this very difficult time.
It is very much appreciated and also allows them to pass on to other unfortunate families, some financial assistance to help repatriate their loved ones.
