A TRALEE mom and her two daughters were feeling a little lighter-headed on Wednesday evening after they had a large part of their hair cut off to help two great causes.

Majella O’Connell of O’Connell’s Pharmacy, and her two daughters Meabh and Maria had been growing their hair out for months after they decided to donate their locks to the “Little Princess Trust” who provide wigs for children and young people who have lost their own hair due to cancer treatment or other conditions.

In doing so, they also decided to raise some vital funds for the local Cancer Support Centre Recovery Haven Kerry. They started a gofundme page which has raised €585 so far, while more has been collected in donation buckets.

Majella’s own brother passed away two years ago and used a cancer support centre in Waterford which gave him great support, so she decided to choose a similar facility in Tralee to help out.

The trio went to Hairworks Tralee Hair & Beauty on Wednesday where Carrie Anne Clifford chopped off a large part of their hair.

Majella said they are continuing the fundraising for another few weeks so if anyone hasn’t had a chance and would like to make a donation, they can do so in their collection buckets in O’Connell’s Pharmacy, St. Brendan’s Park, HairWorks Tralee Hair & Beauty and Tralee Medical Centre, or on the gofundme page by clicking here.
