Rita Fitzpatrick of Delgany, County Wicklow, celebrated her 85th birthday this week by becoming the first tattoo recipient in the annual Tattoo-Drive for Irish mental-health promoters, JC Foundation.
The grandmother was joined by daughter, Sam Donohoe (above left), and granddaughter Hazel Donohoe (above right) who each had a simple love-heart tattoo applied, the design selected for this year’s fundraiser.
The official Tattoo-Drive takes place on Saturday next, at The Ink Factory on 15 Wellington Quay and at 19 Parliament Street, in Dublin’s Temple Bar.
On the day, a volunteer team of fifteen tattoo artists will tattoo the love-heart design, in return for a €50 donation to the foundation. It is hoped the campaign will raise €20,000 to fund 365 free therapy sessions for young adults.
