The Join Our Boys Trust

The Naughton brothers from Roscommon – Archie (8), George and Isaac (4) have been diagnosed with DMD (Duchenne’s Muscular Dystrophy). It is a devastating 100% fatal neuromuscular disease which means these three children are unlikely to live beyond their late teens or early 20’s. The Join Our Boys Trust has been set up to raise awareness and funds to build a specially designed house, acquire modified transport and provide them with the medical requirements they will need. Please support our fundraising night in Nally’s Bar, Ballymahon on Saturday, 24th May. Music by Tangle Wood & Friends. All musicians, singers and dancers welcome. Junior session 8 – 9pm, Senior session 9pm to late. Super raffle including a prize for All Ireland hurling tickets. No cover charge. All donations greatly appreciated. Every euro counts.
