ICHAS Students Castletroy Christmas Fundraiser – Help Share their Dreams



By I Love Limerick Correspondent Niamh Higgins

The Irish College of Humanities and Applied Sciences (ICHAS) in Castletroy are inviting members of the public to join them on campus on Wednesday 17 December from 12pm until 2pm for their Christmas funding raising event in aid of the ‘Share A Dream Foundation’.

The event, known as Help Share Their Dreams, will be a student run Christmas bake sale and raffle for the general public with the hope of raising as much money as possible for the ‘Share A Dream Foundation’.

Well known, Limerick natives including the Limerick Rose, Dawn Ryan have given their full support to the fundraising event and will be helping out on the day.


The Irish College of Humanities and Applied Sciences is a college dedicated to Counselling and Psychotherapy. Many of the students, current and past, are involved with a number of charities and foundations including ‘Saoirse’, ‘It’s Good to Talk’ and ‘South Hill Outreach’.

The Share a Dream Foundation move heaven and earth to make a dream come true for a child who is terminally ill. Every effort is made to include the immediate family in the child’s dream. We are helping to make the seemingly impossible become possible.

President of the Students Union, Patrick Fitzgerald explains the reason for their choice of charity, “We decided for Christmas that we would love to do something for a charity involving children and since ‘Share A Dream’ are just up the road from us, we invited them down for a chat about how we will organize an event for them.”

The Irish College of Humanities and Applied Sciences is located at Walton House, Lonsdale Road, Castletroy, Limerick.

The students have created a Facebook event page for the day which can be found here.
