A NURSING home in Ennistymon and a charity in Limerick City are getting some sweet treats thanks to a donation by Shannon Heritage.

Visitor attractions operator Shannon Heritage is donating confectionery from its retail stores. All of their sites are now closed due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Head of Commercial Operations at Shannon Heritage, Vanessa McTigue stated, “We wanted to see if there was something we could do to raise people’s spirits a little at this difficult time and keep a connection to the local communities in our region.

“We had confectionary in our retails stores at Bunratty Castle & Folk Park, the Cliffs of Moher in Co. Clare, and also at King John’s Castle in Limerick. We decided to donate the stock to worthy recipients in the community and will continue to do so over the coming weeks.

She concluded, “We chose a local nursing home in Ennistymon and the Simon Community in Limerick City. This is food and confectionery that would have been sold in our retail stores which are currently closed and it is now being delivered to the two premises over the coming day or two”,
