Dundalk as it Happens
Mrs Brown’s Boys star to arrive in Dundalk this weekend as part of 13 day walk in aid of Billy’s World
Mrs Brown’s Boys star Fiona O’Carroll will be in Dundalk this weekend as part of her 13 day walk from Cork to Belfast in aid of Billy’s World Ireland.
The 36-year-old, who plays Maria on the hit RTÉ/BBC show, set off on her walk of over 260 miles in Cork last Friday and has completed 20 miles a day since.
She is due to arrive into West Street in Drogheda at 5.30pm on Saturday. On Sunday she will set off for Dundalk via Dunleer and Castlebellingham before setting off from Dundalk to Newry on Monday.
You are asked to give kindly to the bucket collectors accompanying her on the way. Fiona has also pledged to donate €1 for every beep she gets along the way.
Fiona is walking for the registered Irish charity Billy’s World.
Billy’s World is a charity set up to raise money to build an interactive recreation holiday facility for families with children with special needs. The emphasis will be on the whole family building dreams and memories. They have planning permission beside The Heritage Resort in Co Laois and are now raising funds to build the facility.
