Our beautiful Amy was taken from us too soon when she lost her life on 6th February in Australia.

Amy, 23, started an exciting new adventure to Australia in recent weeks. After giving up her job in retail in Castlebar, Co. Mayo before Christmas, Amy and her best friend left home to start their new lives in Melbourne Australia.  After a few weeks of traveling the girls decided it was time to start their regional work just outside Melbourne.  On Wednesday last, the girls were making their way to their second day of work when tragedy struck. Unfortunately Amy lost her life in a fatal road accident on that morning.  Amy’s family are completely devasted with the loss of Amy and are desperately trying to get her home to Coolaght Claremorris as soon as possible. 

There are massive fees and costs associated with getting Amy home, and we, Amy’s cousins, are asking you for your help in funding this.  We know that Amy’s immediate family will not rest until they have Amy back home in Ireland.  Any donation, no matter how big or small would be greatly appreciated.

**UPDATE**

It is with great relief that we can say we have raised enough money to get Amy home to Mayo.

We, on behalf of Amy’s family, do not know where to begin in thanking everybody for their generous donations. We never imagined last Friday evening, on setting up this page, the tremendous support we have received over the past 48 hours. Thank you to everybody - friends, neighbours, family, people we do not even know - for helping us at this most difficult time. The unbelievable support and generosity from all of you has given Amy’s parents and sisters some comfort in knowing they will have Amy home as soon as possible now.

We have decided to end this fundraiser tonight as we now have enough funds to cover all costs in Melbourne for Amy’s repatriation. All donations will be transferred into The Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust, where these wonderful people will help us get our dear Amy home where she belongs.

We will never be able to thank each of you individually, but from us - Leanne Lyndsey Laura Anita Michelle and Tracey - THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH xxx

****Update****
From the very bottom of our hearts we cannot even begin to express our sincere thanks to each and every one of you who has donated so far. We never believed we would reach our target. Not to mention within a few hours. We are blown away. This hopefully has covered the cost of Amy’s flight home. We are going to keep the page open and accept donations as we are still unsure the exact amount we will need to cover the cost of Amy’s repatriation. We hope to use other funds for funeral arrangements as well as all arrangements that need to be made in Melbourne. We will keep you all updated when we find out more details in the coming days. Meanwhile please continue to share. And again thank you so much xxx
