A master Mayo goldsmith is offering a lavish prize worth €4000 as part of a fundraising campaign for a little boy with a rare childhood cancer.

Castlebar-based jewellery maker Nigel O’Reilly has teamed up with the Auryn’s Heroes campaign to aid in the campaign to get five-year-old Auryn Phelan to the US for a vaccine that will help prevent a relapse of his rare Neuroblastoma condition.
