Féileacáin is a not for profit organisation that provides support to anyone affected by the death of a baby during or after pregnancy.
“Thank you for the support you give to us, in supporting bereaved parents. You have helped us understand the families a little better, helped us love these babies even more. You’ve given us education, support and compassion to share with the families in our hospital, thank you so much. The Memory Boxes are just priceless to parents.”
“I received my candle in the post today. I was speechless, there were tears of joy.. It's beautiful, the picture doesn't do it justice.. And I will be lighting it for my baby’s birthday. Thank you all so much.”
“I received a candle today with my little angels name on it. I would just like to thank you from the bottom of my heart. You don't know how much it means to me, I haven't got much support and to receive something like this has just been breath taking, to realize that there is someone thinking of me. Thank you so much.”
“I just wanted to say a huge thank you to what you gave myself and my husband . We had no idea what to do but our remembrance box have given us so many memories to hold on to and we appreciate that so much.”

“Fundraising for Féileacáin has given me the chance to honour my son and give something back to other people who are parents to angels. We don’t know what we would have done without our Memory Box and the services provided by Féileacáin, when we couldn’t put one foot in front of the other Féileacáin were there to lead the way”
- John, Co. Mayo
