The Saturday just gone was a day that Tadhg Broderick from Currow will never forget.
Tadhg, who’s 12, suffers from severe Pulmonary Hypertension thus he cannot play rugby – one of his biggest loves.
However, his illness didn’t stop him from having his dream realised at Irish Independent Park, Cork with the Share A Dream Foundation last Saturday.
Tadhg became the Bank of Ireland Mascot that led the Munster team out of the dressing room and to their victory over Glasgow Warriors.
Tadhg, like most youngsters of his age in Currow, is a massive rugby fan so was thrilled when he found out he was going
to be able to meet all the members of his favourite team, especially Paul O’ Connell and Currow’s own JJ Hanrahan.
Tadhg and his family were also given four stand tickets to enjoy the game and create a dream that he and his family will never forget.
“It’s wonderful what S.A.D. do for hundreds of children like Tadhg. They include the family which is really appreciated.
Thank you to the Dream Team for a wonderful memory. We would like to thank Munster Rugby and Bank of Ireland for their help in making Tadhg’s dream come true,” said Marie, Tadhg’s mother and a Castleisland native.
The Share A Dream Foundation hopes to go on to fulfil more dreams like Tadhg’s and doing so it needs donations as it relies totally on funds from the public.
