Emma’s Butterfly Garden
In September 2012 Killashee officially opened Emma’s Butterfly Garden in aid of Debra Ireland. This stunning creation of a butterfly garden was the brainchild of Emma Fogarty, Patient Ambassador with Debra Ireland. It was her dream to have a butterfly garden in a location where those affected by EB could go to enjoy peace and tranquillity. There is a fountain in ‘Emma’s Butterfly Garden’ where visitors are welcome to throw coins into the Fountain in order to ‘Make a Wish’ and all donations are given to Debra Ireland.
Killashee House Hotel are supporters of Debra Ireland’s beautiful butterfly wedding favours which are now available to order directly from Killashee for all of Killashee’s Brides and Grooms. Killashee also promotes Debra Ireland wedding favours at all wedding trade shows that Killashee is represented at both nationally and internationally. You will also regularly see their beautiful butterfly favours in our floral arrangements around the hotel.
In March 2013 several team members from Killashee House Hotel ran Debra Ireland’s Wicklow Mountain 10K trail run with all sponsorship achieved going directly to Debra Ireland.
