MOST 16 year old girls would run a mile from even the suggestion of shaving off their hair, but not Ella Fitzpatrick.
The Newmarket-on-Fergus teenager and her dad Tadhg will face the hair clippers on May 23 to raise money for the Irish Cancer Society.
“I remember seeing other people shaving their hair for charity and I just knew that it was something I wanted to do and I know that my hair will grow back. I also have had some family and friends affected by cancer and sadly I feel that lots of people can relate.
“When I decided that this was the year I was going to do it my dad said that he would join me. Neither of us have ever done something like this so we are both quite excited,” Ella commented.
They had originally arranged a fundraising event at the Inn at Dromoland, but this was cancelled due to the Covid-19 restrictions. Instead they will film the event and share it across social media.
