Emma Langan is a 3rd year student in Gortnor Abbey, Crossmolina. She is 14-years-old and has been diagnosed with leukaemia in recent days.

She will have to undergo treatment over the next few months and it will be a long tough road to recovery. This is the second time in a short number of years the Langan family have been affected by illness, as Emma’s mother Yvonne passed away in July 2019.

Organiser Denise Carroll said: “We as a community want to show our support towards Emma and her family financially. All money raised will go towards any expenses Emma and her family may have over the course of Emma’s treatment plan.

“Emma has a love and a massive passion for Gaelic football. Emma played on the U14 Mayo team in 2021 when they won the Connacht title and currently plays for the U16 St Brigid’s team. We are organising a friendly game between St Brigid’s (Emma’s team) and McHale Rovers (Emma’s school friends) (date to be confirmed) there will be a bucket on the gate for anyone who cannot use the GoFundMe page, refreshments on the day.”

“Emma is a very special girl to us all and all donations no matter how big or small are greatly appreciated.”
