Thank you to Mary Buckley & Family

One huge ‘Thank You’ to Mary Buckley and family, for hosting a Tea & Coffee Day and raising a phenomenal €3,500 for the Mercy University Hospital Cancer Appeal. It was organised in memory of loving husband, father and friend, John Buckley. Friends and family were treated to a mini buffet of pastries and Mary’s famous Tea Brack accompanied! Thank you to all who supported.
We also wish Mary, and her daughter Audrey O’Sullivan, the very best of luck in the Womans Way & Beko Mother of the Year 2017 awards, both are nominated.
