Fire destroys Mount Temple home - campaign to help family

Yesterday afternoon (Thursday), a fire broke out in Lisa and Nigel Grennan's family home in Carn Park, Mount Temple, Co. Westmeath.

The blaze burned the couple's home to the ground. Fortunately, nobody was in the house at the time.

Local groups from Mount Temple/Baylin have now come together to offer support for the family and coordinate a fundraising effort.

The group have set up a GoFundMe page called ‘Grennan Family Support Fund'.

The organisers of the GoFundMe campaign said: "We as a community, are devastated for the incredible loss of their family home, which was built and completed only two years ago.

"Fortunately, Lisa, Nigel and their two young children were not in the house at the time, but they now face the difficult task of rebuilding their lives and their home following the loss of everything they own."

The Grennan Family Support Fund will help to provide financial relief to the family during this difficult time.
