Mick McCarthy Wows Guests

An empathic and emotive keynote address by Ireland’s manager, Mick McCarthy, gave voice to the lasting effects the loss of a parent has on a family. His honest and heartwarming words resonated with the guests who like most people in Ireland, know some family member, near or extended, affected by cancer.


‘A real-life superhero’ is how Brendan’s sister Rita described her brother after he canoed all the way from Strabane to Manchester to raise funds for a cancer charity which supported her through her illness.
