THE FAMILY of a Limerick girl who tragically passed away as a result of an undiagnosed heart condition, have donated almost €6,000 to the Children's Ark Unit at University Hospital Limerick. 

Aimee Keogh, from Old Singland Road, was only two when she tragically passed away as a result of an undiagnosed heart condition at UHL in 2014. 

Aimee’s family are determined that their beloved daughter will leave a legacy for children in Limerick and have established the Aimee Keogh Memorial Rugby Blitz at Richmond RFC as an annual fundraiser.

Almost €6,000 has been raised through this fundraiser as well as a colours day at Donoughmore National School, where Aimee’s brothers Ben and Luke are pupils.

Dr Siobhan Gallagher said: “We are extremely grateful for the generosity of the Keogh family, in memory of Aimee, to think of the children attending the Ark. Their donation will go towards creating an play area for children, and their parents, to take some time out from the ward.”
