Approximately £800 was raised on behalf of the Irish Soldiers’ Relief Fund as a result of the Countess of Limerick’s recent St. Patrick’s Day initiative. The successful campaign involved supplying sprigs and boxes of Shamrock from Ireland to celebrate the occasion, providing much-needed support to the Irish Soldier’s Relief Fund.
The generosity shown by participants in the Countess of Limerick’s St. Patrick’s Day initiative illustrates the strong sense of community and support for Irish soldiers. By purchasing sprigs and boxes of Shamrock from Ireland, people were able to celebrate their Irish heritage while simultaneously contributing to a worthy cause. The funds raised will significantly impact the Irish Soldiers’ Relief Fund, providing assistance to soldiers in need and demonstrating the care and commitment of the Irish community both at home and abroad.
