Navada's Irish Expedition

Welcome to Ireland!

“ From farm to castle ”

Navada is a 15-year-old boy from St. Francisville, LA and was diagnosed with cancer. His one true wish was to explore Ireland! He traveled with his mom, their family friend, and his best friend, Landon!

The part that Navada was looking forward to most was exploring the castles, including King John’s Castle in Limerick Ireland.  Their stops included Blarney Castle, the Titanic Museum in Northern Ireland, and Blueberry Hill Farms where they spent the day hanging out with farm animals and experience Irish farm-life for a day!  They even baked fresh scones and shopped for hand-dipped candles.  From there, they explored Killarney where the group enjoyed a kayaking tour of the Killarney lakes.

Even though this can be a scary time for many wish kids and their families, Navada had a great time exploring the Irish countryside!
