A new memorial will be erected in Limerick later this year to recognise the life-changing work carried out by Concern founders Aengus and Jack Finucane - but we need your help.

Over fifty years ago, Aengus and Jack Finucane were part of a movement which has had a profound impact on millions of people worldwide. 

The late Finucane brothers were instrumental in shaping Concern's vision out of its formative beginnings in response to the devastating Biafran famine. The brothers from Limerick led relief efforts in the world’s most challenging humanitarian contexts throughout the 1980s and 1990s, and each of them continued to play an active role right up until their retirement.

While Aengus and Jack are sadly no longer with us, their commitment and courage inspired legions of Concern volunteers and workers and lives on in our work in 23 countries worldwide today.

A memorial bench will be erected in the Finucane's native city of Limerick this year and will serve as a long-standing reminder of the men described by President Michael D Higgins as “unstoppable forces, seeing no such thing as an unsolvable problem".

We are hoping for your support to ensure that their legacy continues far into the future.
