It was Bibi’s wish to give back to Palliative Care team who cared for her in her time of illness. Her friends and family promised her they would do this and organised the fundraiser.

“We are overwhelmed with the support,” said Sharon Larkin, one of the organisers, who thanked Bibi’s husband Pa and their three children.

“Bibi will be happy that the Kerry Hospice is receiving this money to help other people. It’s an amazing cause close to all our hearts. Bibi is missed and loved everyday,” said Sharon.

She also thanked Bibi’s aunt and Tarbert GAA who hosted the match, especially John O’Connell, Marie Mulvihill and Kieran Foley.

Sharon thanked Eileen O’Flaherty, the Emmets under 13 team and coaches/management for playing in the match, Vincent Murphy for donating the medals and trophy and The Swanky Bar for having food and DJ afterwards.

She also thanked everyone who came on the day and anyone who donated in any way or helped filled sponsor cards, donated spot prizes, advertising, printing and decorations.
