The 2013 Rosses Annual, produced and sold all around the Rosses to raise funds for baby Lucy Gallagher, has generated €10,000 to help with her future care.
Lucy, who was born in 2012 with the extremely rare condition Harlequin Ichthyosis, needs round the clock special care, including every two hours through the night. Lucy’s parents, Gary and Carleen Gallagher of Maghery, were delighted to receive the cheque from the Annual’s editor Joe Greene last Friday. They said: “We are totally overwhelmed by the kindness shown to us and so touched by the support shown by everyone over the past 21 months.”
Sincere thanks to all the contributors and sponsors, and all who have bought copies. Annuals are still on sale at local shops or from Joe on 085 174 2559 or firstname.lastname@example.org
