Sean McDermott Street Fundraiser Demonstrates True Christmas Spirit
22 December 2014
Labour Deputy Joe Costello, a member of the fundraising committee, said: "I wish to congratulate the local community for the way they rallied around and supported the three families who had lost everything. The money raised will help them get their lives together again after the trauma of the fire and subsequent hospitalisation. It is a welcome Christmas present, and the kindness of the local people who fundraised for their neighbours in their hour of need represents the true spirit of Christmas."
