Murty Bryan from Tonagha, Thurles and Kilconieron, Galway along with three of his family, Meghan, Tomás and Cari undertook a parachute jump in Clonbullogue Co. Offaly recently to raise funds for MS Ireland. Murty, an avid sportsperson played hurling, football, soccer and many other sports in his younger days, but is currently wheelchair bound, with MS. That didn't stop him jumping out of a plane though and he would like to thank everyone for their generous support. The fund raising page is still open, www.justgiving.com/ Meghan-N-Bhriain, and all donations for this great cause are welcome. Congrats to Murty and all involved
