Raising Funds for Cúnamh Iveragh 


Raising Funds for Cúnamh Iveragh 


Damian Murphy. One of Sherlock’s recruiters decided at the beginning of June to start a small fundraiser for Cúnamh Iveragh


Cúnamh Iveragh is set in South West Kerry and it supports children and young adults with special intellectual needs. It is made up of parents and friends of these special people and grown through the years. It provides many facilities and supports which have made life easier for them and their families. Cúnamh’s primary aim is to keep these facilities in our local area as we feel that our children should have the choice of living locally if they so desire.

Cúnamh Iveragh lost out on massive funding in 2020 without the Ring of Kerry Cycle Race and as it stands they have nowhere to facilitate people over the age of 18 with intellectual disabilities in South Kerry. At present this group is in the process of fundraising for an extension to the existing facility. To date, they have raised €230,000 and require €450,000. 

For this fundraiser, Damian’s plan was to virtually walk from his house in Celbridge to his family home in Portmagee, Kerry (333km) during the month of June. 

Arron Sherlock and the team of Sherlock Recruitment, recognising how important this cause is to Damian and also how important the need is, wanted to help. Arron decided that Sherlock will contribute all the profits from all the Manual Handling Certifications booked through the month of June and these would go directly to Damian’s GoFundMe Campaign.  

Fast Forward a month and Sherlock Recruitment and training were able to donate over €1000 to the cause and Damian himself has raised over €6000 to contribute.  We are very proud to be a part of this fundraiser and always try to support the endeavors of our employees.
