The iNUA Collection selected Down Syndrome Ireland as their charity partner in 2019.

The company is proud to have raised over €90,000 for DSI to date, due entirely to the generosity of colleagues, hotel guests, and the support of the Down Syndrome Ireland team.

At an event in Dublin One, the iNUA Collection presented the fundraising cheque to the DSI team, represented by Gerard O’Carroll, DSI President and Aoife Gaffney, Head of Employment at DSI.

Ten of the group’s 15 Down Syndrome Ireland colleagues from across 12 hotels attended the event, along with their families.

Sean O’Driscoll, CEO of the iNUA Collection promised the groups commitment to continuing the €5 per €100 contribution to DSI for all vouchers sold across its hotels as well as introducing the ‘Clean the Planet, Not my Room’ campaign, where a €1 per room donation is made to DSI on behalf of guests.

Sean also recognized the support of Aoife Gaffney, Head of Employment and the team at DSI in being critical in the success of the National Employment Programme in our hotels.

“With Community as one of our core values here at The iNUA Collection, we are delighted to continue supporting this partnership,” said Mr O’Driscoll.

“Using our group resources and expertise to make a positive impact and engaging both guests and teams in this process. The practical supports offered by Down Syndrome Ireland are invaluable, and their work in supporting adult education and independence enhances the lives of thousands of children and adults with Down Syndrome across the country. Our fundraising efforts are one crucial way for us to support DSI and the important work they do. These efforts allow us to engage with our guests and colleagues in a meaningful way, building a sense of community and a sense of social responsibility. We are privileged to be part of this journey with DSI.”

Gerard O’Carroll, President of Down Syndrome Ireland and father of Yann, a colleague of Muckross Park Hotel, said the iNUA Collection makes a difference to everyone’s lives, their Down Syndrome colleagues, the teams they work alongside and the wider community of guests and visitors in the hotels.
