Mile in Memory Walk
FirstLight are delighted that actress Úna Crawford O’Brien is the Mile in Memory Ambassador.
Úna’s daughter Sorcha died from Cot Death in 1990 aged 17 weeks.
She also has two sons, Tim and Fionn.
In 1998 Úna joined the cast of Fair City and has been playing the part of Renee Phelan since then.
She has appeared in many stage productions throughout the years, including Best Man, Grumpy old Women, Love letters and Menopause the Musical.
Organising a walk is a wonderful way to honour the memory of someone special to you.
