The Mayor of the City and County of Limerick has opened a book of condolence in memory of Shay Kinsella, founder of Share A Dream Foundation.

Mayor Michael Collins said: “Shay worked tirelessly to help children who terminally ill see their dreams come true. He founded the Share A Dream Foundation in 1989 after meeting a seven year-old-girl who was battling with leukaemia and since then through the work of the foundation brought smiles and happiness to thousands of sick children and their families.”

“The people of Limerick thank Shay for his drive and desire to help those children. Shay’s legacy will live on in Dreamland, the purpose-built fun centre near Castletroy which allows children of all abilities to ‘just be children’ and not think about their illness or disability.”

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the book of condolence is only available online on Limerick.ie here.

It will remain open until Tuesday 4 August 2020 before the book is collated and presented to Shay’s family.
