Clionas Foundation is a charitable organisation that was founded in 2007 by Terry and Brendan Ring following the death of their daughter Cliona, who died from an inoperable brain tumour. Its aim is to provide financial assistance to families from Ireland who have children undergoing long-term medical treatment for critical illness.

There are currently over one hundred children’s charities operating in Ireland but Cliona’s Foundation is unique in that it focuses completely on non-medical assistance for families who have exhausted all other avenues of assistance. No other national charity in Ireland offers financial support for non-medical costs associated with the illness.

Tickets are priced at €30 with all proceeds going to Cliona’s Foundation and are available on the Eventbrite website .  The workshop is suitable for all from the age of 13 upwards. For further details you can contact phil at 061 – 331333 or by sending an email to [email protected]
