    Owen Mulligan supports the raffle as part of our fundraising efforts for the Royal Maternity Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), Belfast. Every one who donates, no matter how big or small will be entered into a draw to win Mugsy's boots. The suggested donation is £5.

    Here's why we are fundraising....

    No parent ever wants to find themselves in NICU, but in January 2016 our son Franky was born and taken straight there. Franky was the most beautiful boy with lots of dark hair, but he needed help to breathe right from the start and was very ill thereafter.

    The staff and facilities at the Royal were excellent and made a devastating time in our lives just about bearable. Knowing that Franky was getting the best medical care possible gave us hope. But, Franky didn't make it and he died peacefully in the NICU just 20 days after he was born.

    But for so many other families their story comes with a happy ending. Each year hundreds of babies get stronger and better and go home to lead full, healthy lives with their families.

    So, every penny of the money raised through this raffle will go towards neo natal unit equipment, staff training and resources for family members staying with very ill babies. This time is heartbreaking but also very special in terms of making memories. The right resources and support can help families cope and continue with life after loss.

    Mugsy is a GAA legend and his personalised boots are a little piece of history. Who can forget Mulligan's great goal against Dublin right in front of the hill or his infamous battles with Armagh hard man Francie Bellew. Be the lucky winner of his boots and you'll own a bit of the Mugsy magic!!
