Per­fect tribute to Breda at the cas­tle

Drogheda Independent - - NEWS - BY HU­BERT MUR­PHY

FAMILY and friends of the late Breda Ger­aghty gath­ered in the glo­ri­ous sur­rounds of Belling­ham Cas­tle re­cently for the sec­ond an­nual ball to hon­our the lo­cal woman.

Breda passed away af­ter a bat­tle with cancer, but her legacy left many in­spired by her at­ti­tude to her ill­ness and has in­spired great sto­ries and strength.

The night proved to be a glow­ing suc­cess - a dance troupe start­ing it off and fol­lowed by a ma­gi­cian, a five-star meal and more mu­sic.

Liz Somersby from the On­col­ogy Unit in Drogheda spoke about cancer treat­ment and re­search.

Breda’s hus­band, An­thony, thanked ev­ery­one who were part of the night, help­ing make it such a suc­cess in re­la­tion to fundrais­ing for the on­col­ogy unit.
