The Offaly man passed away last month.
The family of a midlands man who passed away from a rare and aggressive form of cancer says they're "immensely grateful" after a fundraiser surpassed €50,000.

Mr. Dooley's sister Mary has been speaking to Will Faulkner on Midlands Today, and has been telling him what James was like:
Anyone who wishes to donate can so here.
