Wedding on hold, TJ and Niamh meet their Covid own goal of €10,000 for hospice

Lovely hurling: TJ Reid and Niamh de Brun

KILKENNY hurling star TJ Reid and his fiancee Niamh de Brun have helped to raise more than €10,000 for charity during their time in lockdown.
Niamh came up with the idea to run a free fitness bootcamp class every week, with each one lasting for an hour.
She aimed to raise €10,000 for the Milford Care Centre in her native Limerick and says she is delighted with reaching the target.
She tweeted: “€10,160 gone to Milford Care Centre in Limerick … a sincere thank you from both TJ & I to every single person who donated and took part in our online lockdown bootcamp.”
Milford Care Centre is a hospice inpatient unit, which also provides multiple services to their community. These include hospice at home services, a nursing home, day care for both seniors and people with palliative care needs.
Niamh revealed earlier this year that the couple had to postpone their wedding for a third time due to Covid.
She posted on Instagram:  “Here’s to being your fiancée for a bit longer Postponed Again. #ThirdTimeLucky.”
TJ plays for Kilkenny Senior Championship club Ballyhale Shamrocks and at inter-county level with the Kilkenny senior hurling team.
In 2019, nearly four years after meeting in the car park of Tesco in Cork, Kilkenny TJ Reid whisked Niamh back to the rebel county where he popped the question in front of passers-by in Cobh.
Away from the world of hurling, the four times All-Ireland winner is farm obsessed and a budding entrepreneur, but despite all the sacrifices he made for sport he says that it was all worthwhile.
Despite the coronavirus call a temporary halt to their wedding, the couple seem to have it all worked out.
