The Daughter’s of Charity Lisnagry is a service for persons with intellectual disabilities. The service is committed to “The development of the potential of each person with an intellectual disability in an atmosphere characterised by love, respect and creativity”.

Speaking about the charity, O’Connell said,

“I have witnessed this in the care given to my sister over the last fifty years. Catherine is a very outgoing, good humoured, energetic lady with a smiley disposition who continues to thrive under the care and attention given to her by all the wonderful staff in Lisnagry. Funding is always needed to enhance and to continue this top class service provided to the residents.”
