Louis Mullins and Sean Finn in Boher
ROCK solid Limerick corner-back Sean Finn is a lot more generous off the pitch than he is to corner-forwards on it.
The four-time All Star winner from Bruff visited the Mullins family in Boher, representing a partnership between the Gaelic Players Association (GPA) and Cliona’s Foundation.
He took time out of his busy schedule to meet Louis Mullins, aged 14, in a socially-distanced manner, to bring some festive cheer to Louis and his family. It’s been a particularly tough year for Louis due to suffering ill-health.
Sean said Louis is a remarkable young lad who is incredibly inspiring.
"It was truly an honour to meet him and his fantastic family. I am delighted to support the work of Cliona’s Foundation - every day of the year they make a positive difference to the lives of families and children going through very challenging times," said Sean, who didn't come empty handed. He presented Louis with a hurley and jersey.
The GPA and Cliona’s Foundation recently announced an official charity partnership to raise vital funds to make a difference to the lives of families across Ireland caring for a seriously sick child.
