Christmas Card For Barry 

You might remember Barry Connolly from Co.Meath, who loved receiving cards and after we spoke to his mum Sharon about it, Barry received over 4,800 birthday cards in September of this year. 

Well, we’ve had an email in to the show saying;

"Could you please email me name & address for Barry, the 30 year old that his Mam asked for cards for his birthday this year.

I can't find his details ( in spite of knowing I saved them) & would like to send a Christmas Card...thank you"

Kind Regards 

Mary Frances

We’ve checked with Barry’s mum Sharon and she’s ok with us sharing the address again and that’s Barry Connolly, Carranstown, Ballivor, Co Meath

Jennifer Purcell Cervical Cancer at 25

Jennifer Purcell Cervical Cancer at 25

Jennifer Purcell from Limerick moved over to London to follow her career in media. Thanks to the late campaigner Laura Brennan, Jennifer was conscious of the dangers of cervical cancer and booked a smear test as soon as she received a letter from the NHS ahead of her 25th birthday. Jennifer’s early intervention proved to be important and she diagnosed with Stage 1 cervical cancer – spending her 25th birthday in hospital getting treatment.
