There is nothing stopping you or me or anyone organizing a fundraising event of some sort to help out these “ordinary” families. For an ordinary joe soap you may not fill PUC but you might fill your local and raise a few grand.
To question where the funds raised are going is to imply it might not be going to a charity or the family and someone else is benefitting. That’s a huge leap to take with simply no evidence to back that up.
Are some on that list in this for good publicity? Im sure they are. As the old saying goes there’s no such thing as a totally selfless act. They may be on it for good publicity, or to feel good about themselves or whatever but who cares if it’s ultimately for a good cause?
So far the organizers and families motives have been picked apart, Liam millers financial situation questioned and a whole argument about the GAA v the FAI.
At this stage I wouldn’t be surprised if the family are just sick of it all as I’m sure they never wanted for any of the controversy this has generated. I also hope none of them ever stumble across this thread.
