Rob Kearney turns on Christmas Lights at CHI at Crumlin

The festive season kicked off in Crumlin on Friday when Rob Kearney joined patients, families and staff from Children's Health Ireland (CHI) at Crumlin to switch on the Christmas lights.

“CMRF has helped families in most communities across Ireland, so I’m proud to support their work.” Rob Kearney, who is a CMRF Crumlin ambassador, said. “Childhood illness takes too many precious moments of laughter, play and happiness. Christmas should be a special time for children no matter where they are.”

"We were delighted to hold the annual light-up at the hospital to support our patients and their families and help raise plenty of Christmas cheer,” Tracey Wall, Director of Nursing at CHI at Crumlin said. “Christmas is such a magical time of year for everyone, and we think it’s so important that children and their families in hospital get to experience that magic too. Events like this make such a difference to the children and families being treated in the hospital.”

Denise Fitrzgerald CEO of CMRF Crumlin thanked everyone for their support throughout the year – “On behalf of everyone at CMRF Crumlin we would like to thank our supporters, volunteers and friends nationwide for their support this year and wish everyone a Merry Christmas."

Carols were sung loudly and as the evening grew dark the lights on the tree shone brightly, creating Christmas magic for the children attending the hospital.
