We have dedicated this area to pay special tribute to the extremely generous people who have made a contribution to CRY. It is because of these amazing people that CRY is able to keep our doors open as we do not receive any government funding. All at CRY would like to express our sincerest thanks to everyone who has provided us with support.
Claire Nolan and Stephen Barrett were married on 17 August 2013 and celebrated with family and friends in Mount Wolesley. They made a generous donation to Cry in lieu of wedding favors – in memory of their beloved cousin Paul Cusack who died suddenly in November 2012.
Brenda Carey and Joey O’Connor were married on September 21st and celebrated in The Lough Allen Hotel, Drumshambo, County Leitrim.

The Menlough Drama Group performed the comedy play “Wake in the West” on Saturday 1st June in Monivea Community Centre in aid of Cardiac Risk in the Young. The play was a great success and received glowing reviews from the local community. They raised €2,700 for CRY and presented the cheque to the CRY representative Orla Durkan in McGanns pub in Monivea over the past weekend.
Therese Blade, who performed in the play, is married to Pat who lost two brothers- Johnny and Thomas- to Sudden Adult Death Syndrome. There were 11 siblings in the Blade's immediate family and the remaining 9 children and their own families have all attended the CRYP Screening Centre in Tallaght Hospital. The Blade family would like to thank all of their family and friends and particularly the Menlough Drama group for all of their support at this fundraising event. CRY would like to thanks the Blade family and the community of Monivea for all of their support.
