Dream day for Princess Megan

Princess MeganFRIDAY August 1 was a day like no other for six-year-old Megan O’Connor from Westbury, who got to fulfil her dream of being a princess for the day thanks to the Share A Dream foundation.

She suffers from an undiagnosed condition, has a learning disability and requires the use of a walking aid, so when her mother Lorraine contacted Share A Dream, their team immediately got to work on making Megan’s dream come true.

The day began with a visit from Princess Keara Armstrong, who gladly answered the call at the last minute after Miss Limerick Grace Walsh was forced to cancel due to illness.

A beauty team presented Megan with a princess dress and worked on her hair, nails and make-up, before a stretch limousine arrived to the O’Connors’ door to collect Megan and her family.

She enjoyed a tour of Limerick city prior to a visit to the Crescent Shopping Centre, where her five ladies in waiting accompanied her as she took in a variety of shops, all of whom presented her some beautiful gifts and treated her magnificently.

Once the shopping had finished, Megan and her family were treated to a sumptuous dinner at the Clarion Hotel, after which she was brought home to enjoy the memories of what was a special day.

Share a Dream paid thanks to An Garda Siochana, the Crescent Shopping Centre, Clarion Hotel, Irish Diamond Limousines, Keara Armstrong, Miss Limerick Grace Walsh and all those who volunteered to help make Megan’s dream day become an unforgettable reality.
