Who Is Livie ?

Olivia Mulhern is an 8 month old baby recently diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) Type 1. Without treatment her condition will deteriorate and it will be unlikely she could survive past her second birthday.

What Is SMA ?

Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is caused by a gene deletion that causes deterioration of the nerve cells connecting Livies' brain and spinal cord to her muscles. There is no cure and Livie has the most severe type.

Livies best hope is a one off gene treatment, currently only available in America and costing a staggering two million dollars. Livie is against the clock as this treatment is only available to children under two years old.

JUNE 5TH 2020


To help raise 10k for Livie's fund, 3 Donegal lads are doing a mammoth hike the second weekend in June (5th,6th & 7th)


A punishing three day hike climbing Carnaween, a mountain in Letterbarrow, Co. Donegal an incredible 20 times non-stop over 48 hrs. The total altitude ascended during this ordeal is the direct equivalent of scaling Mount Everest.



Daniel will be releasing his single 'Don't Let the Music Die' available 29th May on Spotify! All proceeds going to Livie.
