Ron Meets Baby Jacob

It was indeed a very special moment – one to be truly treasured – when Ron Gerrard met with Baby Jacob Nowak. It all happened this Saturday afternoon (17th July 2010) at the very welcoming home of the Nowak Family. A royal welcome was accorded to Ron and Tom (Grainger) when we visited the Nowak home at Killarney Road, Millstreet. We had not at all expected the delicious meal which was all ready to be served in the Polish manner. Joining Jacob was his Mum (Wiola), his Grannmother (Grazyna Nowak), his sister and neighbour, Thomas Duggan. Jacob’s Dad (Mariusz) had not returned home from work before we left. Ron made the very impressive presentation of €655.00 and a beautiful self-made timber lorry toy to Baby Jacob who found the lorry the most interesting of all! Ron and Tom had organised the splendid fund-raising event on Friday with the very kind permission of all at Supervalu, Millstreet. It was one of the most sincere occasions I have ever witnessed as this afternoon’s presentation between Ron and Baby Jacob took place. We feel hugely privileged to have been in such company. Here we share that very memorable occasion. (Seán Radley for
