Limerick’s Noah Quish launches McDonalds appeal for charity donations
By I Love Limerick Correspondent Ann Mc Donald
The Quish family makes headlines once again as little Noah Quish launches McDonalds appeal for donations to the Ronald McDonald House Charities Ireland (RMHC).
McDonalds has set up a new donation system around the country to help families with sick children called ‘Round-Up for RMHC.’
The new donation at kiosk system will give customers the option to round up their order total to the nearest euro or give a set donation towards the Ronald Mc Donald House Charities Ireland (RMHC).
RMHC Ireland helps families with sick children stay together with home-cooked meals, private bedrooms, kitchens, and laundry facilities close to Ireland’s dedicated children’s hospitals.
The Quish family received support from RMHC after their son Noah began treatment in Crumlin Hospital. He has a rare chromosome condition, a heart condition, brain malformation, scoliosis, sleep apnoea, and has undergone numerous surgeries throughout his life.
He is cared for by his mother, Una, who was named Limerick Carer of the Year 2021.
“Noah suffers from a number of medical conditions. In 2017, he had to have open-heart surgery. Our lives were turned upside down. When he was critically ill in hospital, Ronald McDonald House gave us a vital home away from home to be close to Noah,” Una explained.
We are so thankful to our Charity Partner, @McDonaldsIRL, who have launched their new "Round Up for RMHC" feature on McDonald’s kiosks nationwide today!

“Noah is a little fighter and he has such a great attitude, he doesn’t let anything hold him back. Ronald McDonald House was a vital part of his journey to having a better life.”
Since opening its doors 17 years ago, Ronald McDonald House Charities Ireland has supported over 4,300 families. In 2020 alone, over 200 families from all over Ireland stayed at RMHC Ireland, with the average length of stay for a family last year being 20 nights.
“Even the smallest of donations can make such a big difference to families, spending time together in a ‘home-away-from-home’,” said Marian Carroll, Chairperson of Ronald McDonald House Charities in Ireland.
“We could not achieve our mission of providing families a place to stay while their child undergoes medical treatment without support from the community and corporate partners like McDonald’s.
“For families of children receiving medical treatment, it is those nights and time together that gives them strength.”
