OSCAR winner and West Cork resident Jeremy Irons has visited Kolkata with Irish-based charity The Hope Foundation.

The legendary actor who lives in Kilcoe Castle has been a patron of HOPE for many years and this was his first visit to Kolkata to witness the work of HOPE first-hand.

Jeremy said: ‘There is a truth in giving, a truth about humanity, a truth which reveals itself through a simple act of goodwill.

‘The truth is that we have the potential and the power to do so much good in a time of great need and to make a tangible difference,’ he added,

Meanwhile, the 2019 International Rose of Tralee Sinead Flanagan was also part of the trip.

Over the coming weeks HOPE will be encouraging people to buy a Gift of HOPE, download or purchase their new album called ‘Friends of HOPE’ or donate to help continue the work in Kolkata for Christmas, please see
