Treasured photographs and memories with my beautiful friend, Orlaith Quinn.

She would have turned 38 on 29th April.

This October will mark five years since she left us.

In July, I plan to run the Half Marathon in Hillsborough to raise money for Action on Post Partum (APP) in her memory.

Orlaith was charismatic, compassionate, fiercely loyal, full of sass and an absolute stunner. 💞 

There are people in life you instantly connect with, and for me, she was one of them.

An inquest found Orlaith’s death was ‘both foreseeable and preventable’ and in her concluding remarks, Coroner Maria Dougan called for a Mother and Baby Unit (MBU) to be established in Northern Ireland as a matter of urgency.

In the absence of a functioning Executive, the possibility of this being developed in the near future is slim however APP continue to do all they can to push for reform. 

In that context, I want to raise money for this very worthwhile charity to assist the support they give mothers, mothers-to-be and mothers yet to come. 

The biggest honour of my life is being ‘Mummy’ and for the privilege to have been so cruelly cut short for Orlaith, and her children, is heartbreaking. 

So please donate if you can, share to raise awareness, and most importantly of all spare a thought for Orlaith. 

She is missed. 💔
