Charity hike keeps Conall’s memory alive

Conall McCrory who sadly passed away from cancer in 2016.

A group of hill walkers from Omagh and Carrickmore will be aiming to reach the peak of Ben Nevis in Scotland soon as part of a fund raising driving for the Children’s Cancer Unit in Belfast.

Kieran McCrory, who sadly lost his son Conall to cancer in March 2016, will be joined by his brother-in-law Ciaran Loughran and family relatives and friends, Eunan and Enda Loughran and Matthew Keyes, on the gruelling hike which will finish on Saturday, August 4.


All four are hoping to raise vital funds for the Children’s Cancer Unit at the Royal Victoria Hospital.

“During Conall’s illness, the doctors, nurses and staff at the RVH provided great support and hope for children and their families. This much needed work goes on everyday and any funding that can be raised will make a difference to all affected by this terrible disease,” said Kieran.

Funds can be donated through their Just Giving page via the following link –
