Make A Wish Ireland

Make-A-wish Ireland has one simple aim: To grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to bring hope, strength and happiness. Since 1992, Make-A-Wish has granted wishes for more than 2,300 brave children across Ireland, including 221 wishes granted in 2017 alone. A wish granted is true magic for the child, providing respite from their normal routines of hospitals, doctors and treatment. Make-A-Wish does not receive any government funding and relies overwhelmingly on the kindness of the Irish public to continue granting wishes. Make-A-Wish is 'triple locked' by Charities Institute Ireland for best practice in transparency and accountability.

In June of 2018, my son Aido was granted his wish to go on a sun holiday in Salou, Spain home of the amazing theme park called Port Aventura. Watching Aido jump into the pool without a care in the world was the icing on the cake. For 5 long years, he was deprived of the simple things in life and this holiday was a dream come true for the whole family. We will be forever grateful to Make-A-Wish for doing this for us. If you would like to support this outstanding charity then please donate.

On Friday 1st of September 2020, it is envisaged to have all 218 fire stations in Ireland out climbing their ladders for sick children in a nationwide event following on from the success of Cork Firefighters Ladder Climb for sick children in 2016 that raised €150,000. It will be a synchronised ladder climb kicking off at 1:12 pm (112 or 999 are the emergency numbers here in Ireland) and we plan to climb to the height of the International Space Station which is 408km above Earth. All proceeds will be going to Make-A-Wish Ireland. Details of the event to be announced in late 2019.
