The Lord Mayor of Dublin Daithí de Róiste is delighted to announce that his recent Charity Ball has raised €150,000

This is the highest amount ever raised for a Lord Mayor’s Charity Ball.

The three charities involved, the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association, Breast Cancer Ireland and A Lust for Life will each now receive €50,000.

The first two charities were chosen by the Lord Mayor as two that were close to his heart, while the third was picked by The Round Room at the Mansion House.

“I am extremely proud to have played a part in raising such a big sum of money for three very worthy charities,” said the Lord Mayor. “I would like to thank everyone who attended on the night for being so generous. I am also thinking today of the late Charlie Bird, who represented the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association at a photocall we held to announce the Ball back in December. I have no doubt that having Charlie involved helped highlight the work of the association and raise the profile of the event.”

The Lord Mayor’s Charity Ball is a ticketed event which takes place each year and the money raised from the tickets, auction and raffle on the night goes to three charities.

This year’s Ball took place on Saturday, 27th April 2024.
