This page is a dedication to Detta McGuirk.
Detta was a long term supporter of Lakers and Grandmother and Best Friend to Fionn McAlastair who attends our club regularly.
During lockdown Detta took up her knitting needles for the first time in 40 years and started to create some beautiful hats, blankets, tea cosies and more, and set about selling them along with her daughter Brenda to support Lakers in our time of need.
Detta sadly passed in October, and will be greatly missed.
Detta is leaving behind some wonderful memories, and examples of kindness and love.
Detta kindly raised just over €500 for Lakers through her knitting, which we hope can be used to fund some of our arts and crafts activities next year when we reopen.
Brenda and her family are still selling some of Detta’s wonderful creations.
If you have ordered or received one of Detta’s creations you can pay for it or donate in her memory by clicking the button beside
Lakers would like to thank all of the McGuirk/ McAlastair family for their kind supportof our club. We are so touched and glad that we could be a part of this story.
