Group Managing Director, Mark Flanagan, presents Amy Carr, Director of Fundraising and Marketing of Focus Ireland, with a donation cheque for €50,000.

Kirby Group Engineering made an outstanding donation of €100,000 at the end of last year to be split among three charities. Focus Ireland received €50,000 and Women’s Aid and UNICEF each collected €25,000.

2021 was the second year in a row in which the Irish firm has made a donation of this amount, continuing its longstanding tradition of supporting those in need.

Group Managing Director Mark Flanagan said it’s an important feature of their calendar. “We’ve come through another very difficult year in Ireland in 2021 and this is a good opportunity for Kirby to support some of those who have felt the tough times the most. We’re proud to play our part in helping three fantastic charities doing great work in Ireland and around the world.”

The Christmas donation follows contributions worth a further €160,000 from Kirby to local, national and international charities last year.
