In memory of Orla Mccooey
We fund research and provide support to children and adults affected by cancer


Hello family and friends!

This November my sister, Sorcha and I will be running in the New York City Marathon as part of team Irish Cancer Society. We will be running in the memory of our sister Orla who was the most incredibly kind, talented & caring person in the world whose life was cut short at the age of 20. She passed away in Sept ‘16 from a rare brain tumour and remains such an incredible inspiration to us.

We are also organising and running a Dublin tennis tournament involving teams from Carrickmines, Greystones, Sandycove, Monkstown, Glenageary & Glenalbyn. Players in all age brackets, shapes, sizes and standards will be playing to help raise money for ICS.

We are hoping for donations in all forms and sizes as every little bit will help. 
So far we have donated €1,370 ourselves with over €4,800 donated from friends & family (The original Facebook fundraiser expired so we created this). Our goal is €10,000 to help everyone affected by cancer.

We’d be incredibly grateful if you’d share this and feel free to message if you have any questions ❤🙌🏻
