ROCK Limerick’s strong corner-back Sean Finn is much more generous off the field than he is with corner forwards.
The four-time All Star winner from Bruff visited the Mullins family in Boher, representing a partnership between the Gaelic Players Association (GPA) and the Cliona Foundation.
Despite his busy schedule, he took the time to meet 14-year-old Louis Mullins in a socially distanced way to bring some joie de vivre to Louis and his family. It was a particularly difficult year for Louis due to his poor health.
Sean said Louis is a remarkable young boy who is incredibly inspiring.
âIt was truly an honor to meet him and his fantastic family. I am delighted to support the work of the Cliona Foundation – every day of the year they make a positive difference in the lives of families and children who pass through very difficult times, âsaid Sean, who did not come empty-handed. He gave Louis a hurley and a jersey.
The GPA and the Cliona Foundation recently announced an official charitable partnership to raise vital funds to make a difference in the lives of families across Ireland who are caring for a critically ill child.
This partnership will see actors from counties across the 32 counties supporting the life-changing work of the Cliona Foundation and contributing to the association’s fundraising efforts over the next twelve months.
