*Cathleen O'Neill is a tireless community campaigner who pioneered adult and community education in the Kilbarrack area, and over the decades was a tremendous part of numerous justice campaigns. We in FJI worked closely with Cathleen on the 'Anglo Not Our Debt' campaign. Following a series of strokes and surgeries over the past 18 months, Cathleen is now wheelchair-bound and cannot move home without major adaptations being done to her home. We are supporting her in raising funds for this.
