John Paul McQuaid suffered very serious injuries when he was struck by a car while holidaying in Portugal earlier this year. As a direct result of an accident that could have involved any one of us, John Paul was placed in an induced coma for several weeks while the Portuguese medical staff worked hard to stabilise him. Thankfully, at the time of publishing, John Paul is making good progress, but he has a very long and painful battle ahead.
A Benefit Night will take place on Saturday 12th December in the Isaac’s Well, Clonmellon to raise as much money as possible to help bring J.P home and to continue his recovery.
A packed night of entertainment is promised, including live music courtesy of local artists alongside a raffle and auction.
Tickets are now on sale for just €10 each. If you buy a ticket and are unable to attend on the night itself, simply write your name and number on the back and and hand it back to your seller. You’ll then be entered in to a draw with a chance to win some great prizes.
