President Michael D Higgins has hailed inspirational Oliver Lynch from Ballincollig for raising almost €26,000 for CUH Charity, Enable Ireland and Dogs for the Disabled from his fundraising walk. Oliver has cerebral palsy and epilepsy and unfortunately finds walking very difficult but he can do it with the aid of his walker. He is now on a mission to help those who help him by taking on a 5k fundraising walking challenge. Well done and thank you Oliver.
