MRI Fundraising hits its target

The MRI – Now fundraising has reached its target of €250,000. The fundraising which has been active up and down the County for close on a year and a half has now achieved its goal.

Ciarán Sheridan, Chairmen of Friends of Wexford General Hospital commented, “Thanks to the truly amazing efforts of so many people, we have hit and exceeded our target” “We committed that we would raised €250,000 to go towards the provision of an MRI scanner in Wexford Hospital. This was our commitment, the HSE are committed to providing the very considerable remaining funding”.

A temporary MRI has been installed in Wexford General Hospital and it is due to be operational by the end of October. The planning process for the permanent MRI is underway and we hope to see it up and running within two years.

“Thank you for supporting this mammoth fundraiser.  Your donation did make a difference.  An amazing success story for the entire County”. Ciaran Sheridan Chairman of Friends of Wexford general Hospital

What has been demonstrated clearly is that Wexford people take great pride in their hospital. The Friends of Wexford General Hospital charity was formed some 12 years ago to help co-ordinate the involvement of Wexford people in the continuous improvements of Wexford General Hospital. The generosity of Wexford people and Wexford businesses has resulted in over €4.1M worth of additional equipment and buildings being funded directly from donations made to the “Friends” charity.


  1. Hi, Neat post. There’s a problem with your web site in internet explorer, would test this… IE still is the market leader and a big portion of people will miss your great writing due to this problem.

    New Kids on the Block is my favourite band of 90s. NKOTB had so many hits! The ones I remember are ‘Tonight’, ‘Baby, I Believe In You’ and, of course their hit ‘Step By Step’. These are real songs, not fake ones like today! And it is sooo good NKOTB have a tour in 2019! So I’m going to visit their concert in 2019. The tour dates is here: New Kids on the Block tour Indianapolis. Open the page and maybe we can even visit one of the performances together!
