Family trek Bray’s 3 peaks in aid of Purple House

Members of the Beirne family trekked three peaks of the Great Sugarloaf, Little Sugarloaf and Bray Head on Saturday in memory of their late dad Tony and sister Debbie.

The family wanted to raise funds for the Purple House Cancer Support in Bray and set themselves a target of €2000.00 which has been surpassed.

The group and pet dog Bailey took just over 6 hours to walk over 17k in what has been the hottest day in Wicklow this year.

Sister Louise how came up with the fundraising idea said

“In 2014 we sadly lost our loving Dad, Tony, after a battle with cancer. At the start of 2022 we suddenly lost our beloved sister Debbie. 

While pieces of our hearts are missing and may never heal, we hope that funds raised may go on to support other families.”
