Ms. Mulryan presented the new Christmas Hamper Appeal banner and slogan – Even the Holy Family needed help at Christmas. Fr Seamus Enright, Director of the Christmas Hamper Appeal, commented that the Holy Family knew what it was to be homeless, what it was to flee political violence and what it was like to live as migrants in a strange land.
