Twomey Family Remorial Weekend

Twomey Family Remorial Weekend is an action-packed weekend of sport & fun in honour of Connie, baba Oisin and baby Elber Marie Twomey.

This annual weekend took place in July 2022. Lots of people gathered to take part in a number of events which were held over the weekend including a table quiz, 55K cycle, 5K family walk & run and the Connie Twomey Memorial Cup U12 Hurling Blitz.

We feel very privileged to have been 1 of the 4 charities chosen to receive funding from this amazing weekend. Thank you so much Elber, for donating €2,990 to support the National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH) for adults and children. These funds will make a direct and impactful difference to those on their rehabilitation journeys in the NRH.

Twomey Family

We were an extremely happy family treating ourselves to a ten-day holiday in Devon. We chose the Devon, the sunny southwest for our holiday as personally I was afraid to fly as I was five months pregnant with our beautiful little lady. Taking our car also gave us the luxury of bringing lots of baba Oisin’s toys etc., so we literally could have a home away from home. We had 6 fabulously carefree days together. Regretfully on day seven at 2:47 PM tragedy struck us, and our wonderful life ended.

We were involved in a horrific crash with Marek R.I.P. which claimed the lives of our beautiful little man baba Oisin and his beautiful unborn sister. If that wasn’t tragic enough it also claimed the life of my darling husband Con on May 3rd last year.

Now we have decided to hold a weekend to remember with love and to honour Connie, baba Oisin & baby Elber Marie. We intend that this remorial weekend will be an annual event so that our beauties are never forgotten. Instead, they will always be remembered with the love and honour that they so deserve.
