Zac and Ross visit Disneyland

6yr old Zac and 5yr old Ross Corkish from Naas, Co. Kildare are two lovable little rogues and like to get up to all sorts like many boys their age.

Unfortunately, however, the boys both suffer from Cowden’s Syndrome. This means they both suffer with severe developmental delay, poor muscle tone and are both in wheelchairs.

Their parents contacted Share a Dream Foundation to make their dream come true and last September all the family flew out to Disneyland for a 3 day VIP trip.

Along with their older brother Corey (11yrs) the boys and their parents visited the parks enjoying all the rides, shows and parades and of course meeting their favourite character Mickey Mouse.

Rose of Tralee makes dream come true

16 year old Niamh Gleeson from Bansha, Tipperary who suffers from a very painful illness Juvenile Arthritis had a dream to be the Rose of Tralee.

After arriving to the beautiful Fels Point Hotel, and checking in Niamh and her family were greeted by the Mayor of Tralee Pat Fitzpatrick.

Then it was off to the Spa where she got her make-up done while enjoy some delicious Mock-tails and goodies. Next a Garda escort arrived to whisk her off to Tralee Garda Station for a full tour of the surveillance and operations centre before escorting her to Kelly’s Hairdressers were she got her hair done.

At the parade Niamh got the shock of her life when she was greeted by Rose of Tralee Maria Walsh, who asked her new friend to join her on the main float beside her. Then Niamh was really overcome when Maria offered to switch sashes with her and also gave her the very special Rose of Tralee crown just for a very “special moment in time”.

Finally, Niamh visited a number of shops where she received numerous gifts and later that evening went to a special meet and greet with Boyband “Hometown” and attended their concert with her family.

Taylor Rose is VIP for a day

Four year old Taylor rose Russell from Newcastle West was born with a life limiting condition called occipital mylengaencophecele and a severe type of Spina Bifida and is the only case in Ireland with the illness.

After Taylor’s mum contacted Share a Dream to do something special for her, Taylor Rose became the VIP at the Annual Jeff Power Memorial Tournament. At 12 noon a fancy car collected Taylor her mum Mary and aunt and nephew at their home and whisked them into Portland Park, the home of Summerville Rovers as the VIP at the event.

Taylor arrived to be the grounds to cheers of applause where she was met by Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Woody and even a Minion who all put on a very special show for her. Taylor was presented with lots of gifts, then got her face painted and later enjoyed some delicious tea and cakes at the event.

After a hectic day it was time for a bite to eat so off Taylor headed to Sinatras for a delicious dinner before being collected in her fancy car and brought home.

Taylor’s mum Mary said “I can’t thank Share a Dream and everyone at Jeff Power so much for an amazing day that was very special for my little girl Taylor.”
