Congratulations to Breda & Edward Morrison who accepted our October Outstanding Achievement Award on behalf of their son, Michael Morrison.
Michael Morrison passed away in July 2014, at the age of 38. He was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis very early in his life and was told he will not make it past 12 years old. He is fondly remembered as a strong character, helpful and kind, by all who knew him.
Throughout his relatively short life his ambition was to help other people and spent a great deal of his time and energy to promote good causes. A UCD Michael Smurfit Masters Graduate, Michael wrote books to give hope to people that were suffering and the funds from the sales of these books go to the Tracy Lawlor Trust, a Cystic Fibrosis charity www.tracielawlortrust.com. Michael completed three more books awaiting publication and the funds raised from these books will also go to charitable organisations.
Michael organised numerous charity events, balls and soccer blitzes. He was appreciated by everybody he worked with and most of all by his family. A tireless worker with a great joie de vivre, as his parents describe him, Michael will be remembered by everybody as an inspirational young man.
South East Radio, together with the Talbot Hotel are very proud to give Michael the first posthumous Outstanding Achievement award for all his great work in helping charities and giving people hope.
