More than Just A Cookbook

September 22, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Every day families arrive at hospitals away from their homes with a child, husband, partner, wife, son, daughter, brother or sister in need of urgent medical treatment. Brú Columbanus provides accommodation and support to families with a relative in any of the Cork Hospitals.

We recently passed a massive milestone, over 9000 families have now stayed in Brú Columbanus. Sadly, for us the last 18 months have been difficult. All our usual ways of fundraising were cancelled due to the covid

pandemic. Thankfully, due to the generosity of a number of guests and companies we have been able to provide accommodation free of charge, but it has been challenging to say the least.

So, with this in mind we at Brú have decided to address our fundraising needs in a way never done before. After a lot of brainstorming, we have decided to produce our first ever cookbook, in the hope of raising much needed funds for Brú Columbanus.

We would love for you or a family member to be included.

If you are interested in getting involved, we would hold your hand in every step of the journey:

  1. A short paragraph about why you or volunteered in Brú Columbanus. It is  hoped  that  each recipe  would  be accompanied  by  your experience. (max. 150 words)
  2. One or Two recipes – including ingredients and method
  3. A photo – of yourself or a family We do not require a photo of the food as we intend to use stock images.

We need lots of time to put this project together to please email your recipes, paragraph and photo to info@ brucolumbanus.com before the 20th September.

We would love to hear from you if you have any questions, please get in touch with

AnneMaria 021-4345754 or 087 2787 074 or Helen O’Leary (Fundraising Committee) 087 311 7592.
