The Mercy Stars

Honouring those who go the extra mile for The Mercy University Hospital

Friday, September 30th saw those individuals, teams, and fundraising volunteers who go the extra mile for patients and colleagues at The Mercy University Hospital, officially recognised at The Mercy Stars award night, which was held in Littleisland, Cork.

The Mercy Stars, organised by the Mercy Hospital Foundation and The Mercy Univerity Hospital, celebrate those, who through their fundraising efforts make thing a little easier for patients, and who help the Foundation invest in new technologies to ensure that The Mercy is at the forefront of the effective diagnosis, treatment and care of Mercy patients. 

The fundraising awards were presented by Micheal Sheridan, CEO, Mercy Hospital Foundation; while Mr. Jim Corbett, Duputy CEO, Mercy University Hospital, presented awards to the hospital staff who make life better in the hospital on a day to day basis. The Mercy Stars is one of the most highly anticipated events on the Mercy’s calendar.  

Organisers of Cobh Darts picked up the Mercy Stars Fundraising Event Organiser of the Year Award.  Over the last three years Damien Rowe (Purchasing Manager, Commodore Hotel), Richie McGrath, Adie Walsh, Dave Campbell, Chris Keogh and Robert Pender have held an exclusive Darts Night in the Commodore Hotel in Cobh. Their events have featured World Dart Champions such as Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor, Micheal Van Gerwen and Gary Anderson, and have raised €23,792 for the Mercy Foundation Kids + Teens Appeal.

Members of Cobh Darts Association were quick to thank all the people who supported the events over the year who  without this support it would not have been possible to raise the badly needed funding for such a good cause.
