Delvin parents prepare for special pilgrimage for their late son


Almost five years since the heartbreak of losing their infant son, Noah, due to a condition known as hypoplastic left heart syndrome, Delvin-based couple Gordon Farrell and his Swedish-born partner Jessica Eriksson are making a special pilgrimage to Croagh Patrick in his memory in a few weeks’ time.

Their objective is to raise funds for the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation, an organisation who were so supportive to them during the darkest period of their lives, both before and after they finally parted company with Noah on 14 June in 2012.
