Welcoming Friends from Ireland
The bond between Mercy Home and County Cork grows stronger each year, thanks to a relationship which has graciously facilitated many memorable trips for our youth to visit Ireland.
In appreciation of this unique relationship, Irish delegates and Mercy Home coworkers exchanged gifts that symbolized such a rewarding friendship. Marrese presented a framed drawing of Mercy Home’s iconic oak door, which has been welcoming kids for over 130 years.
“This is a symbol of our welcoming hospitality, which symbolizes a lot of what you do on our trip to Ireland,” said Marrese. “On behalf of Mercy Home, thank you so much for being here.”
Mayor Murphy reciprocated with gifts and appreciation of his own.
Mayor Murphy has worked with the Centre for Independent Living in Limerick and the National Learning Network in Bantry West Cork – programs that deliver certified training and resources for people with disabilities.
“I wish you well in your endeavors. I know you’re doing a fantastic job. We look forward to maintaining the relationship for many years.”
