Limerick boutique, Ciara’s Closet, has announced that they will be donating ten percent of their profits from the sale of their Debs dresses to the Midwest branch of Focus Ireland, for the month of August. Focus Ireland is a non-profit organisation that provides services for people who are homeless and people at risk of homelessness.

Ciara’s Closet is located at Unit 3 Bellfield House on the Ennis Road, directly across from the Strand Hotel. The Limerick boutique offers a range of beautiful dresses for sale or hire. Their clothing ranges from elegant evening wear to bridal, to bridesmaid’s dresses to Debs, suitable for women of all ages.

Dee Morrissey, Ciara’s Closet, said, “We decided to take part in this initiative in honour of our one-year anniversary. We are delighted to be supporting Focus Ireland, a service that provides endless support to those who are homeless or those who may face homelessness.”

Celia Holman Lee, Focus Ireland Ambassador, visited Ciara’s Closet to support this great initiative.

Celia said, “As an official ambassador for Focus Ireland, I am so honoured to support Ciara’s Closet in raising invaluable funds that will be donated to ease the trauma of homelessness that Irish families are currently going through each day.”

Aoife Sheehan, Midwest Fundraising and Marketing Executive for Focus Ireland, said, “According to a recent study carried out by Focus Ireland, the rate of homelessness in Limerick is increasing at an alarming rate with 265 adults currently without a home. There are 1,700 families homeless in Ireland today and this number is growing. In Limerick, Focus Ireland provides prevention and housing advice, support services for families, support services for young people, short and long-term housing, and research-based services. We are thrilled that Ciara’s Closet has decided to support us and we are urging any young lady who is looking to buy a Debs dress, to visit Ciara’s Closet during the month of August.”
