King Henry and wife Deirdre join Kilkenny volunteers to help homeless on streets of Dublin
Hurling legend Henry Shefflin, who gave so much to so many during his stellar career on the field, is still giving back.
The 10-time All-Ireland winner and his wife, former Kilkenny camogie player Deirdre, joined the Kilkenny Helping the Homeless team giving out food and clothes on Dublin’s streets over the weekend.
Henry wrote on Instagram: “Last night we joined ‘Kilkenny helping the homeless’ group in Dublin.
“These charities do so much work out on the ground and to actually be part of the reality was something of an experience. We walked throughout inner Dublin and met so many people from so many walks of life.
“Winter is coming, nights are colder, these people need our love, warmth and generosity,” added Henry.
Kilkenny Helping the Homeless are led by five Kilkenny volunteers – Mary Pierce, Brendan Pierce, Evelyn Hourigan, Linda Comeford and Larry Coady – who have been helping the homeless on the streets of Dublin for the past three and a half years.
The group makes regular journeys to the capital to provide hot food and clothes to people living on the streets.
