"I have the best family in the world," declared Majella Doherty Kelly as she was interviewed on stage at the Midlands Simon Community Longford People of the Year Awards 2018 on Friday, October 12 in the Longford Arms Hotel.
Renowned for her fundraising efforts around Edgeworthstown, Majella was presented with her award by another Edgeworthstown lady, the 2018 Longford Rose Loren Katie Logan, who was representing the sponsors of the award, Valentine's Bar, Longford town.
Majella said she was fortunate to have the best family in the world and that everyone was behind her no matter what task she undertook.
"I'm stuck in everything," she said. The death of her father and the care shown to him by the local palliative care team, inspired her 'to do something' positive and she organised a fundraiser for the palliative care team.
