MORE than €3,000 was raised from a coffee morning in aid of Pieta House in the city last week, which also marked 25 years in business for Dan O’Gorman Solicitors.
Based at their offices on O’Connell Street, the fundraising event saw over 100 of the legal eagle’s clients turn up to raise awareness and funds for the suicide and self-harm crisis service.
Dan O’Gorman, a past pupil of CBS Sexton Street, told the Limerick Post that he wanted to give something back by supporting a local-based charity to mark his businesses Silver Jubilee, and felt Pieta House fit the bill.
“Pieta House provide a listening ear for people in distress. For people who are lost and have nowhere else to turn a listening ear is just what they need,” he commented.
Organised by conveyance and probate solicitor Audrey Browne, coffee and cakes were provided last Thursday morning by Limerick Youth Service, of which Dan is a board member.
“We all felt it was an excellent idea to donate the money to Pieta House. Nearly every other day now the Coast Guard chopper can be heard over the city or the Fire Brigade are seen down at the river,” Miss Browne explained.
