THE new Rose of Tralee, Kirsten Mate Maher, popped down to Kirby’s Brogue Inn to help launch the annual coffee morning in aid of Kerry Hospice.

She was joined by members of the Kerry Hospice Foundation who are encouraging bars, hotels, businesses and groups to hold a coffee morning on Thursday, September 20 in aid of the local hospice.

It’s a nationwide event but people can choose whichever hospice in the country they want to donate their funds raised.

This year marks the 26th annual Coffee Morning and nationally it has raised  over €35,500,000, an incredible and life changing amount supporting specialist palliative care all across Ireland.

It has enabled local hospice groups to hire more specially trained Palliative Nurses to visit people in their homes, provide high quality care on In-patient Units, and refurbish facilities as well as buying crucial equipment.

Most importantly, your support by hosting a coffee morning has helped patients to live life as fully as possible with dignity, respect and comfort whilst making the most of precious time with their family and friends.
