Red Cow Moran Hotel CEO Abseils For St. James’s Hospital

To mark the third anniversary of his near-fatal brain injury and remarkable recovery, Red Cow Moran Hotel CEO Tom Moran abseiled off of the hotel's new nine-storey extension on Sunday, June 2, to help raise €200,000 towards building a dedicated brain disease resource and research centre at St. James’s Hospital.

Moran, was joined on the day by 130 fellow thrill-seekers, including his family, neurology consultant Dr. Colin Doherty, Dancing with the Stars finalist Cliona Hagan, Fair City actor Dave O’Sullivan, broadcaster Ray D’Arcy, comedian, Eric Lalor and former professional boxer Bernard Dunne.

Aiming "To Provide The Best Value Care To Patients"

Doherty commented, "It was great to abseil alongside Tom. The funds raised from this amazing challenge will help us reach our final target of €350,000. Our aim is to provide the best value care to patients in the most appropriate setting in a timely manner, using the best information, diagnosis and therapy, with the best-trained staff in the country. We already have a funding pot of €80,000, raised through a number of marathon races over the last few years, and the hospital has committed to supporting this great initiative with funding. We are so grateful for the Moran family’s generosity."
