Director of Fundraising and Communications at Galway Hospice, Charlene Hurley said: “We would like to extend our sincere thanks to everyone who attended Sunday’s special remembrance event. Galway Hospice simply could not provide the care we do without the love and support of the people of Galway at Christmas and throughout the year.”

“A special thank you to our guests of honour, singers and volunteers, and to the Defence Forces for their support of our annual Tree of Lights Celebration,” she added.
