As a 3-time Olympian, I’m so passionate about the Olympic Games. And while there may not be many supporters this year, I felt we could still make something really special out of something that has been really difficult.

As a team, we are going to make it to Tokyo (virtually) – and I’m delighted to have you with me!

As a mum, I know kids like to be adventurous and I love to see it. However, even the toughest little superheroes need a bandage from time to time and the Emergency Department can be an incredibly stressful place.

That is why all funds from this campaign will go towards the creation of a Children’s Emergency Department in CUH – to create a quieter, safer and child friendly environment – which should remove a lot of stress from an already difficult situation.

As the only level 1 trauma centre in Ireland, and with the recent government announcement that CUH will be one of the two designated major trauma centres in Ireland, you never know when you may need them.

Even if you’re not from Munster, you may have holidayed here at some point?

So, let’s make it happen!

I will support you every step of the way – you’ll get messages from me and a few other surprise messages to keep you motivated and we’re a team – we’re in this together!!

Let’s get to Tokyo!
