At the age of 2, Muireann had a heart transplant at Great Ormond Street Hospital, London. The following year she travelled to Lourdes with her parents as part of the Oblate pilgrimage.

On June 23rd her father, Críostóir, a former member of the Oblate Youth Service, will undertake the IronMan challenge (3.8km sea swim followed by a 180km bike course and ending with a full marathon) in Cork to help other children and their parents experience the peace and inner healing that Lourdes has to offer.

Please help us raise money to support these children and their families by sponsoring Críostóir this summer.
