Welcome to  Blanchardstown  Hospital Society
The official fundraising body for Connolly Hospital, Blanchardstown.
RECENT FUNDRAISING EVENTS
Our Teams of Volunteers, Staff, Event Coordinators and Friends of the Society are constantly working on new ideas and events to raise much needed funds.
On this page you can see some of the recent projects that have made amazing contributions to The Society and the Hospital as a whole.
Sky Dive 2021
Our amazing staff, and friends and families of our staff, at Connolly Hospital will always go that extra mile for our patient’s benefit. Sometimes that might even involve jumping out of plane!
Our inaugural Sky Dive for Blanchardstown Hospital Society began on 7th September 2021 when 4 of our volunteers got to take that leap of faith at The Irish Parachute Club, Clonbulloge, Co. Offaly. Thankfully, they all survived and told their tales of excitement, nerves and exhilaration to anyone who would listen. This is our biggest fundraiser this year and it will be continuing indefinitely until all of our 33 volunteer Sky Divers complete their jumps. This is definitely one to add to your ‘bucket list’. Thank you so much to all of our Sky Divers for putting in so much effort to fundraise and we are immensely thankful to all who have made and continue to make donations on their behalf.
