On Tuesday July 30th, The Skeff Bar will hold Racing for Rosabel, a stylish and entertaining event in aid of Rosabel's Rooms. Running for the 2nd year in a row, the organisers are delighted to hold an event to raise money for such a great cause and local charity.
The story behind Rosabel's Rooms is a deeply tragic one; Rosabel Mary Monroe, daughter of Gary Monroe and Suzanne McClean, was only 16 months old when she unexpectedly passed away on April 21st 2017. In her father's words "She was an angel who flew too close to the ground" and sadly she passed away in her cot at home, her death has remained an unexplained tragedy of a beautiful soul taken too soon.
In the wake of such emotional turmoil, both Suzanne and Gary decided there needed to be a better form of support for bereaved parents in the throes of grief. Thus, founding Rosabel's Rooms - An organisation that provides bereaved families and parents with the facilities they need to grieve in peace and comfort in the after-math of child-loss.
Speaking of the event, Suzanne mentioned:"We are so grateful to all our sponsors and supporters who have come together for the second year of Racing for Rosabel at The Skeff. It's going to be a fantastic day out with genuine racing tips and lots of incredible style and craic! We are super proud of our little girl's legacy and how so many bereaved families have been supported in her memory. This would not be possible without events like this. The people of Galway have been nothing short of outstanding in their support and in helping to keep Rosabel's memory alive"
