Eileen Murray about her Dad

Eileen Murray about her Dad

The person that has dedicated his life to caring and sharing has to be my father. As well as caring for his 4 kids, all grown up now and his wife he has given all his free time to the Order of Malta Ambulance Corps which he does all voluntary. He joined up when he was about 9 years old and loves every moment of it. He has been in Lourdes a number of times helping with the sick but his favorite duty has to be the horse racing where you will see him driving the ambulance after the jockeys or standing at the last fence to administer first aid to any fallen jockey.

The Cooley Peninsula Story

The Cooley Peninsula Story

There is a remote peninsula on the East coast of Ireland in the Co Louth.

It is a very special place, as down through the generations, the people living there have always relied heavily on the helping hand of their neighbour for survival.

I have only been involved with CASA for a short time but in that space the Caring and Sharing that i have witnessed from the community is exceptional. Donations are brought to the Breakhouse every day without fail and always given with a smile and a kind word, everything is put to good use in the CASA Shops to provide funding for our vital service. Not only have the community provided support through donations but also by giving their time as volunteers to cook or help out where they can.

Lourdes Pilgrimage 2014

Lourdes Pilgrimage 2014

It takes courage to step beyond our boundaries, leave our comfort zone, and go into unknown territory. In May 1990, two ladies from the CASA organisation visited my home in Leitrim and invited me to travel with CASA to Lourdes. I am a man, disabled because of Motor Neurone Disease. The ladies asked me to walk away from the comfort zone of my family, and spend five days with a stranger who would care for me.
