Fundraiser to support ‘cattle man’ who suffered life-changing brain haemorrhage

An iDonate page has been established to raise €15,000 for a County Longford native who suffered a life-changing brain haemorrhage on December 31st, 2022.

Declan Quinn has been unable to regain mobility and, as a result, will be a wheelchair user for life requiring a high level of assistance.

This page has been created to raise funds to prepare Declan’s home for his needs and to help the family ensure he receives the care and equipment required to return home to continue rehabilitation and lead as normal of a life as possible in his own home.

His daughter, Natasha Egan, writes on the fundraising page, “Declan is a 57-year-old husband, father and grandfather from Granard, Co Longford”.

“He was and still is a passionate outgoing cattle man who bought and sold cattle all over the country.”

“Declan has fought a tough battle with the assistance of Mullingar Hospital and the National Rehabilitation Hospital, to regain simple everyday things such as eating a biscuit and having a cup of tea.”

“We thank anyone who can donate and help us bring Declan back home,” Natasha added.

A benefit night will take place on Saturday, September 30th, 2023, in support of Declan Quinn and family at The Piker’s Lodge Gowna, with dancing with the Mad Ass Mules. Doors open at 8 pm and admission is €20/person.
