Headford 's all-town donor drive

Headford organ donor awareness promoters Mick Connell, Pauline May, Angeline Cooke, Bernie Coyle, Owen Trill and Neil Fraser.

HEADFORD is the first town in Ireland to host a week-long effort to raise awareness and support for organ donation.

The idea came from local man Neil Fraser who lost his dear friend Aidan Hickey earlier this year. Aidan suffered a heart attack while he was waiting for a liver transplant.

Neil says his friend’s death had a huge impact on him and on many other people in the local community.
