In recent months, ACO Kieran Cawley has been going through a very difficult period in his life. He is a sports mad 42 year old, married to Marcella. They have one son, Caolan. Kieran has served for the past 13 years in Wheatfield, Midlands and Castlerea prisons.

Kieran suddenly became very seriously ill in the autumn of 2021 with an extremely rare form of cancer. Treatment options in Ireland appear to be limited, and his family have been looking overseas for help. The options available abroad are very expensive. At this point in time, his family have set up a gofundme page, which can be found at  

The page contains a profile about Kieran, the fight he faces to survive his illness and the treatment that they hope can be secured to help him.

Kieran’s family, friends and colleagues would be very appreciative of any support that you can give to him at this crucial point in his battle. Please click on the link above to read the full story, or search Google for gofund me Kieran Cawley and donate as generously as you can.

Thank you.
