Share A Dream National Children of Courage Awards



In celebration of a fantastic year as City of Culture the Dream Ball and National Children of Courage Awards returns to the Radisson Blu Hotel, Limerick on Saturday 29th November. The annual gala hosted by the Share A Dream Foundation, is the only event of its kind in Europe and promises to be a glamourous, magical and very special evening. Legendary Kilkenny manager Brian Cody will be one of the many celebrity supporters in attendance with crowd favourite Noel Cunningham providing MC on the night.

Eight very special children, who have shown unbelievable courage and determination in the face of illness, have been selected from nominations from all over Ireland . Their determination to get as much out of life as possible in spite of their illness or disability will be honoured and their dreams will come true on the night……….guests on the night really feel part of the magic!

Honouring these children gives many other families, struggling to come to terms with a terminally ill child, the hope that their child can have a fulfilled life. These children deserve recognition and to know that they are not alone and not forgotten about.

“There is no greater joy in the world than seeing the smile on the face of a very special child who has suffered so much in their short and traumatic young lives, knowing you made it happen.  It’s magic!!” said Shay Kinsella, Founder/CEO.



The Dream Ball is a magical night to remember with wonderful surprises, non stop entertainment, fine food, great company, dancing till late and a wonderful feeling of sharing in the achievements of these inspiring children.

The Children of Courage Awards and Dream Ball make a great Christmas Party. Share A Dream is asking people to organise a table of family and friends or just come with their partner . It will be a unique night in the company of some of the most inspiring people in the country.

Tickets are €110 each or a table of 10 is €1,000.
Special rate for tickets to the Dream Ball and B&B in the Radisson Blu Hotel €150.
