After an 8 week long stay in hospital Eimear and her family welcomed James back home. Early January 2023, Eimear set up an Instagram fundraiser with a goal to raise €1,000 for BUMBLEance. In total, Eimear raised an astonishing €15,000 for BUMBLEance. Ever since then, Eimear came on board an an ambassador for BUMBLEance .
