Wexford TY girls raise €1,000 in memory of Aoife

Transition Year students from the Loreto Secondary School in Wexford last week donated €1,000 they had collected, in memory of their late classmate Aoife Daly, to the South East Radiotherapy Trust (SERT).
The girls raised the cash from the sale of arm bands.
Aoife, the daughter of Valerie and Eugene Daly, was just 16 when she died suddenly after falling ill on Christmas Eve, 2012.
She was a fit and active girl who played football and camogie with St. Martin's GAA Club; hockey with Wexford Hockey Club and the Loreto school, and rugby with Wexford Wanderers.
At Wexford Hockey Club, she coached underage players and at St. Martin's she was admired for her leadership in the dressing room.
