Martin came to Carlow as a young boy and is married to Deirdre (Dee) and Dad to 3 great kids.
Martin is known to many from his work as a plumber and his time at CBS, Maynooth University and through his involvement with Carlow Rugby club and Eire Og GAA club.
Martin played with Eire Og back in the day and has remained involved over the years with all 3 of his children playing with the club.
He is also an active member of Carlow Rugby Club, is an ex-player and has coached many youth teams.
Anyone who knows Martin, knows him and his family are always the first to show kindness and help to others. But now they need our kindness and support.
Martin was admitted to the National Rehabilitation Hospital last week. It’s still early days in Martin’s treatment so difficult to know exactly what his long-term needs will be.
Our main priority is to bring him home and we are fundraising for specialised equipment to enable accessible living and transportation for Martin and most importantly for his ongoing care at home.
We would be so grateful for any donation you can make to help Martin. We would also like to acknowledge the support we have received to date from Martin's friends and colleagues.
Any donations you make will be fully directed to Martin’s needs and care with funds being managed by independent trustees.
We will continue to keep you updated on his progress.
Thank you all so much for your support.
