Sinn Féin councillor Chris O’Leary said the event was free to enter but donations were collected at every entrance point.
“Zac’s mother Aishling was there and she couldn’t believe the turnout.”
According to the councillor, the event raised over €20,000.
Following the diagnosis, Zac’s family released a statement saying they were devastated by the news. “To say we are devastated is an understatement. We don’t know what the future holds for little Zac, but we do know we will be by his side every step of the way. It’s going to be a very long road to recovery but we have faith in God and want everyone to continue to pray for a miracle.”
More than €40,000 has been raised online to help with Zac’s recovery
