A magical meeting at Dreamland for seriously ill little boy

8yr old from Dublin who is fighting an inoperable Brain tumour had a dream to visit Disneyland but sadly because of his terrible illness he was unable to travel.

When his Aunt Susan wrote to Share a Dream to ask if there was anything they could do to bring a little happiness into his painful and traumatic young life, the charity immediately got to work to give the family a happy memory having fun together.

“For very sick children like this we try to move heaven and earth to make their fondest dreams come true” said Ciara Brolly, Projects manager.

So, the 12th June this boy and all his family arrived from Dublin to the beautiful Castletroy Park hotel, Limerick and the following day they travelled along with a Garda Escort to “Dreamland Limerick” Fun centre where the entire facility was open for this young boy, his siblings, cousins and friends to bring Disney to him and make his fondest dream come true. He met all the characters at Dreamland – Mickey, Minnie, Donald Duck, Woody, Minion and of course his favourite teenage mutant ninja turtles, Leonardo.

“We were broken hearted when we could not get him out to Disney but Dreamland is a much better option for us as it includes all the family, it’s in Limerick and it’s magical. Thank you so much Share a Dream,” said Susan, his aunt.

“Thank you so much to Castletroy Park Hotel, Limerick Traffic Corps and all who helped in any way to give one young boy and his family a very happy memory that will help get them through tough times ahead” said the Founder Shay Kinsella.
