In the JustGiving post Leighann writes: "Ruth was the most loving, hardworking and caring mother to her three beautiful children Tyler, Lydia and Oliver. Along with her fiance Jim, they worked tirelessly to give their children the best that they possibly could in life.

"From Gymnastics, Irish Dancing, Football and Local GAA Ruth made it her life to make sure the children attended as much as possible so that they would get the most out of their childhood."
