Colin may be saviour of centre
HOLLYWOOD A-Lister Colin Farrell might just have helped secure the future of a vital Killarney special needs centre when he visited the cash-strapped facility to help raise its profile, The Kerryman can exclusively reveal.
The Dublin actor called into the 'Home From Home' centre in Ballydowney to spend time with the special needs children attending the centre in a break from his busy filming schedule in Sneem.
It's almost two years since Farrell opened his heart about his own son James, who was born with a rare form of Cerebral Palsy, and in an exclusive interview with The Kerryman this week he reveals how he felt fortunate to have had the opportunity to witness the "effort, passion and dedication" of staff and parents at the Killarney facility. "There should be a Home From Home in every town in Ireland," he states.
