Kilkenny business woman looking for donations of items to give to Syrian families in Mayo

The owner of a Kilkenny business says she’s going to do what she can to help the eighty Syrian families who have been moved to Ballaghaderreen in Mayo.

Rita Brennan of Lorimat Jewellers on Kieran’s Street is calling for donations of items like men’s runners, flip flops and clothes for those who are now making their home there.

The hotel where they’re staying is being managed by Rita’s cousin.

Speaking to KCLR News, Rita says she’s hoping to bring donations up with her in the next week or so.
