Soroptimists throughout Ireland are profoundly shocked and saddened to learn about the tragic event in Creeslough. We cannot imagine the overwhelming grief that family, friends and residents are confronting.

Miriam Murphy Wood, President Soroptimist Ireland comments, “Words seem so inadequate at this sorrowful time. Our deepest sympathies go out to all those affected by this tragedy, and our thoughts and prayers are with you. We offer hope that you can find the strength to rebuild your community, and we are here to offer help as needed.”

A fund has been established by the Irish Red Cross in collaboration with An Post and Applegreen to provide rapid and long-term assistance to the Creeslough community. 

All donations to this fund will be dedicated to supporting those who have been bereaved, injured, made homeless, or left without an income due to the tragedy. Donations can be placed using the following link:
