€12,000 raised for Bray woman in New Zealand cliff fall

Orlagh Hanratty was injured in a 30 foot fall while rock climbing in Dunedin, New Zealand.

The Wicklow-native is conscious but remains in intensive care.

An online fundraiser set up by Orlagh’s friend, Keith Murray, has surpassed its target of €10,000 in a single day.

Orlagh received multiple fractures in the accident and suffered internal damage but fortunately has no spinal injuries according to Murray.

“Our beautiful friend Orlagh Hanratty had a serious accident in New Zealand on Thursday the 7th of February,” writes Murray.

“Orlagh is a Bray native that many of you will know and some of you may also know her Dad Tommy from Everest Cycles in Bray.”

The injured woman’s parents have travelled to New Zealand, and Murray says that funds raised will be used to provide for her rehabilitation.

“Please share this, get it far and wide. Orlagh has always lived life to the full and would help anyone, it is now our time to help her.”

Over 366 people have donated to the fundraiser so far, including a €500 donation from Dick Shortt.
