Family raise over €12,000 for Galway Hospice in mother’s memory with cow auction

The Conroy family from Coose recently presented Galway Hospice with a cheque for €12,505 which they raised through the auction of Rosie the cow and donations.

The auction was held in December, with the Conroy family donating Rosie for sale in memory of Josephine Conroy who passed away last March.

Rosie, a red limousin heifer cow, was sold at a cattle auction at Ennis Mart for €2,500 to Brendan Keane.

But that was only a part of the money raised as the Conroys also collected donations at the auction.

The cheque was presented to Mary Nash, CEO of Galway Hospice, by Paul Conroy Sr, Josephine’s husband, and their children Fiona Conroy and Paul Jr.

Fiona Conroy, daughter of Paul and Josephine said, “The hospice is just like a home away from home and everyone is treated like family.”

“In our time of need, they were there for us every step of the way, and we will never forget that.”

Galway Hospice is the main provider of palliative care in Galway and the continued support of the people of Galway is essential to keeping this important service running.
