MORE than £2,000 was raised from a special drive-in country music show in aid of ‘Bring Ruairi Home’, a fundraising campaign to help a teenager living with autism, ADHD, a severe learning disability and extreme anxiety return home to live with his family in Fermanagh.

Following the success of the Fermanagh’s Going Country to Bring Ruairi Home drive-in show, organisers Anthony McBrien and Lisa Cassidy presented a cheque for £2,245 to Ruairi’s parents, Neil and Lorraine Smyth, which was raised from the night.

This figure helped to push the Smyth family past their fundraising target, allowing them to start putting in the necessary actions to bring their son, Ruairi, who has been living in a purpose-built facility for people with learning disabilities in Belfast for the past few years, back home to Fermanagh.
