The Walsh household has been fund raising for the hospital for the last 10 years in the name of the Chloe Walsh Fund, which was set up in memory of Kathleen Walsh's granddaughter who passed away at the age of four.
'Everyone at Temple Street, the nurses and doctors, were absolutely brilliant with her and it's great to be able to give something back,' said Kathleen, whose other fund raisers for the hospital include annual festive light shows at the family home in Killinick. Kathleen said more than 100 people turned out for the fund raiser at the Danby Lodge.
'We had dancing, and the band and hotel for free and everyone enjoyed it,' said Kathleen.
She said that since the family started raising funds for the hospital, more than €10,000 had been donated.
