Chef Neven Maguire and Clare’s Wish Foundation


For cooking enthusiasts and foodies, Thursday October 6, is a date to put in your diary, if you would like to see award winning, Celebrity Chef Neven Maguire in person, in the Radisson Blue Hotel & Spa Limerick.

Organised by the Clare’s Wish Foundation as a fundraising event for the Limerick based charity, it promises to be an exciting event with tickets selling out fast.

“We hope to raise as much funds as possible so we can grant more wishes that are on hold,” said founder of Clare’s Wish, Kevin Clancy.

Named after Kevin’s sister, who was born with Spina Bifida and died at twenty four years of age, Clare’s Wish Foundation was established in 2013, and is the only Irish charity that is dedicated to providing wishes exclusively to adults with terminal illnesses.

“My dad passed in 2011. That changed my outlook on life, I wanted to give back, and I started to do some Volunteer work for two charities in Limerick, which lead on to setting up Clare’s Wish, also in memory of my own sister,” explained Kevin.

If people would like to nominate someone they know for Clare’s Wish they can send an e-mail or fill out the application form on the website, where the charity prioritise emergency requests.

“We are the only Irish charity granting wishes for adults with a Terminal Medical Condition. We try and do some event at least once a month. We have Adare to Survive September 25, National Dance- a-Thon in October, and a Wedding Fair in Killaloe November 6.

“We need Volunteers in all Counties of Ireland. We also have a Text Clare to 50300 campaign for any one who would like to donate €4,” added Kevin.

Doors open at 6.30pm where you can browse the artisan food stands that will be on display, and Neven will commence his cookery demonstration on stage at 8pm.

Tickets are €20, and are available at the Radisson Blue Hotel & Spa reception or online at
