‘A lifetime of work gone in two hours’ – Fundraising campaign launched for local family following fire

By Claire Corrigan

A young family from Ballinea Mullingar was dealt a massive blow very recently when their family business, an auto repair garage, caught fire and rapidly burned to the ground, destroying expensive tools, lifts, cars and spray painting equipment.

Speaking this week to Topic, Enda Kilmurray explained that the young family have lost everything. “We’ve been in business for years. One freak accident and everything is gone. A lifetime gone in two hours.”

He spoke of how his dad Tommy built a new garage in 1990. “He was working there before that. He trained a lot of lads in the trade, including me and my brother, Damien. In fact, some of them are working for themselves now.”
