Coffey is proud to announce that our staff have raised €5,000 for Galway Hospice through their participation in the annual Croagh Patrick Climb in July this year. Despite challenging weather conditions, a team of 17 Coffey employees braved the mountain to raise money for this vital service.
Galway Hospice offers palliative care to patients with advanced diseases in Galway, Mayo, and Roscommon. Their unwavering commitment aims to enhance the overall quality of life for these individuals and their families.

Coffey’s donation will help Galway Hospice to continue providing essential care to those who need it most. In addition to the funds raised by the climb, Coffey also matched the donations of their staff, bringing the total amount raised to €5,000. This generous contribution will make a real difference in the lives of Galway Hospice patients and their families.
The Croagh Patrick Climb:
The Croagh Patrick Climb for the Galway Hospice is a challenging annual event that takes place each year. The climb ascends the Reek, a mountain in County Mayo that is considered sacred by many. The climb is approximately 7.5 kilometers long and has an elevation gain of over 700 meters.
The Coffey team completed the climb on Sunday, July 2nd, 2023, despite challenging weather conditions. The team’s determination and perseverance were a testament to their unwavering support for Galway Hospice.
Galway Hospice is a partner of the Health Service Executive and provides palliative care to patients from counties Galway, Mayo, and Roscommon with advanced diseases. The hospice offers a range of services, including pain and symptom management, emotional and spiritual support, and end-of-life care.
Galway Hospice relies on the generosity and support of the community to fund its services. Donations from individuals, businesses, and organisations help the hospice to continue providing essential care to those in need.
