E-mail Print PDF

The Circle of Life Garden of Commemoration and Thanksgiving in Salthill in Galway officially opened on Tuesday 6th May 2014.   Our congratulations to Martina and Denis whose only son Eamon  an Organ Donor, was the inspiration for this beautiful Garden commemorating Organ Donors from all over the world.   They had an amazing team of people working along side them and they should be extremely proud of what they have achieved.  You can read all about it on their website www.strangeboat.org   but we would urge you to visit and see it for yourselves.

WORLD TRANSPLANT GAMES – SEAMUS EAGER

Our Participant in Duban, South Africa

The World Transplant Games take place in Durban, South Africa at the end of July.   There are 26 Athletes and 23 supporters going.   A great number considering the travel and cost involved.   I am delighted to be one of these ‘athletes’ and to represent our Donors, The IHLTA and Heart and Lung recipients.   I will be competing in Golf, Table Tennis, Lawn Bowls and Petanque.   I will endeavour to promote Organ Donor awareness from a Heart and Lung perspective.   I will try to keep an update from the games on this website.   Alternatively, there is an update on Transplant Team Ireland Facebook page of the Irish Kidney Association.

We wish Seamus the very best of luck in the Games in Durban.
