Over €26,000 Raised To Help Elderly Westmeath Couple

Their house was seriously damaged in a fire on December 29th.

Over €26,000 has been raised to help an elderly Westmeath couple, whose home was destroyed by a fire. 

The incident occurred in Rathowen in the early hours of last Tuesday morning. 

90 year-old Pat Murray and his wife Attracta escaped unharmed, but lost all their belongings in the blaze.
