The 166th Tree Of Hope was planted in Tallaght Stadium at a ceremony yesterday morning, Sunday May 21st.
The Tree of Hope team have been voluntarily planting trees around the local area for the past three years to support all those who have been directly impacted by loss through suicide. All funds raised go directly into the planting of our trees.
The Tree Plantings are getting very popular with the tree’s regularly visited by both adults and young children who leave items under them for their Mam, Dad or loved one who may have sadly gone to soon.
Speaking after yesterday’s event, Founder of Tree of Hope Noeleen Fulham said:
“Thank you to Frank Nevin from S.D.C.C for giving us the permission to plant the tree and to S.D.C.C for donating the Holly tree for this planting and thank you also to Cllr Deirdre O’Donovan and James Lumumba for your help in organising this planting too.“To Colm Hudson and Claire O Hara Kennedy for giving their time to sing for us and to Cllr Charlie O’Connor for reading for us.“To Cllr.
