An online GoFundMe campaign for a Waterville man who was seriously injured in France has raised almost €125,000.
Mike Curran was hit by a car in France while coming to the end of a trip of a lifetime with his girlfriend Sara O’Shea; the pair had cycled thousands of miles from China before tragedy struck.
It is hoped that Mike will be moved to a specialist centre in the UK to undergo intensive rehabilitation, which costs €50,000 per month.
Members of St Brigid’s GAA Club in Dublin, where Mike played, and staff at Mike’s former workplace Grant Thornton are hosting fundraising bike-a-thons in the coming days.
