Trees For Clíona

Hi everyone.
It’s National Tree Week so we’re planting trees.
All money raised from this project will go to the Children’s Leukaemia Association.

Since 2006, the Callanan family and friends have organised the Clíona Callanan Memorial Orienteering Event to raise funds for the Children’s Leukaemia Association. Obviously the event couldn’t happen last year, so in 2021 we’re embarking on a new project during Tree Week, which runs from the 21st - 27th March. 

We hope to plant 300 native trees in our field to mark Clíona’s 30th birthday, which we celebrated in January. Throughout the week, we will be planting Alder, Birch, Crabapple, Hawthorn, Hazel, Oak, Rowan, Scots Pine, Wild Cherry and Willow.

The Children’s Leukaemia Association supports and assists families in every way possible during and after their child’s treatment for leukaemia and other cancers. The CLA receive no government funding and rely entirely on voluntary contributions from the public. For more information visit

We have been in direct contact with the CLA and we will be transferring the funds to their Donations Account when we close the fundraiser. The money we raise will provide financial support for counselling, therapy and educational services for children who suffer with leukaemia, cancer and serious blood disorders in the Munster region. The CLA provide accommodation for families while their child is undergoing treatment, as well as offering funding for support groups during this time. Donations also facilitate purchasing essential medical equipment and providing further training to staff at the Leukaemia Unit in the Mercy University Hospital.
