Triona passed away on 1st April in 2o14 after a long courageous battle with Cystic Fibrosis. Triona was an inspirational teenager and her death made a massive contribution to people understanding more about the disease. Triona was a pupil at Castleknock Community Collage and was a very popular young girl. Triona faced her condition head -on, without fear or bitterness. She tweeted a picture of herself for Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Week to raise awareness. In one picture she was laid down surrounded by typical teenage items such as her mobile phone, shoes and make -up. In the second, Triona was laid down surrounded by pills, needles and various other pieces of medical equipment that need to be used by Cystic Fibrosis sufferers. Ireland has the highest rate of Cystic Fibrosis in the world, with one in 19 people carriers.
Triona's story and that of her hero and her exceptional friends went worldwide in the media. Triona and her friends have already raised so much awareness for Cystic Fibrosis. A week before Triona passed away her friends held a ball and raised € 5,000 for Cystic Fibrosis. Triona's friends did incredible work raising money for CF Ireland and giving Triona the send -off she really deserved. We urge all St. Mochta's supporters and the community in Dublin 15 to come along to this fantastic event. Wear as much purple as possible - the colour associated with CF awareness in Ireland. Let's create a carnival atmosphere in Porterstown Road and celebrate the remarkable life of a very special teenager.
Admission is €5 and children are free.
