Andrew McGinley: Grieving father-of-three 'overwhelmed' by donations to charity set up in children's names

ANDREW MCGINLEY has thanked the public after the charity set up in his children's names received huge support.

The father-of-three, who sadly lost all of his children tragically in January 2020, has been keeping their memories alive through social media channel 'Conors Clips', where he shares videos, photographs and stories about his three beloved children.

As well as Conor's Clips, which he launched after promising Conor, 9, that he would help him set up a Youtube channel, Andrew has launched a charity and colouring competition to honour Darragh, 7, and Carla, 3.

As Darragh Did, the charity set up to honour Darragh as he had been stuck in everything in the community, from drama classes to multiple sports, aims to "encourage everyone to get involved more in their own communities and to participate ... As Darragh did".

The trial of Deirdre Morley, the children's mother, who killed them while suffering from temporary insanity, ended last week, and Andrew has since been in the public eye speaking about Conor, Darragh and Carla and the initiatives set up in their name.

He took to Twitter via the Conor's Clips account earlier this week where he said he was "overwhelmed" at the support As Darragh Did had received in recent days.

"Little bit emotional," he wrote.

"I've just gone through your As Darragh Did donations and I'm overhwhelmed by your support.

"Hopefully I will have responded to you all this week to thank you individually.

"Can't type for tears at the moment," he said, adding "Thank you."

Andrew provided a link to the As Darragh Did website-- which you can find here-- to encourage more people to get involved.
