Munster Heart Foundation fundraiser ‘Casino Royale’ raises funds for cardiology services in UHL

The Munster Heart Foundation fundraiser ‘Casino Royale’ is taking place at The Savoy Hotel, Limerick on New Year’s Eve from 8 pm.

The Munster Heart foundation has been growing steadily in 2019 with various fundraising events but this is their most ambitious event to date.




They expect it to be a highlight of the social calendar in the city. They are continuing to raise funds for an Intracardiac Echocardiography (ICE) machine with a target of €120,000. This machine will be a great addition to the already world-class facility and services offered by the Cardiac services in UHL.


Speaking on behalf of the Munster Heart Foundation, Prof. Tom Kiernan & Dr Samer Arnous are taking the opportunity to raise awareness about heart attacks and heart disease saying, “Cardiovascular disease is the single most common cause of death in Ireland and across the western world. Heart disease is becoming more prevalent because of changes in lifestyle, diet, lack of exercise and smoking.”
