We are incredibly lucky to have so many inspirational families come through our doors. The McDonough’s from Loughrea in Co. Galway are one such family.

Amy McDonough was being cared for in the hospital earlier this year when she bumped into Great Irish Bake Ambassador, Donal Skehan. The pair immediately hit it off and it didn’t take long for Donal to ask Amy to join him and be one of the faces of the Campaign – you might recognise this photo from our facebook page and website.

Amy’s winning smile proved to be a huge hit and helped us recruit loads of new party registrations. She also encouraged her mum and dad to jump on board and host their own event. With the support of their local community their passion and hard work paid off. Amy and her family raised a whopping €1,725! Truly amazing!

We can’t thank the McDonough’s enough for getting behind the Campaign and making it a huge success in so many ways. Thanks Amy, you’re a star!
