Its not that the children say: Thank you for a wonderful time.... Its that they say: Thank you for changing my life - Paul Newman. At a magical castle in the foothills of the Wicklow Mountains, children with cancer and other serious illnesses have some Serious Fun. Thats the name of the innovative programme of therapeutic recreation that Barretstown provides for these children with serious illnesses, aged between 7 and 17, and their families. This programme is recognised by the medical world as playing an important part in their recovery from serious illness.All the Barretstown kids are seriously ill. Fortunately survival rates for cancer and other illnesses are increasing. In the meantime at Barretstown, the focus is on fun. It aims to restore to children the fun that might otherwise be denied them through their illness. Children become poets and journalists, singers, musicians and clowns, actors and film directors, photographers and potters, all under the creative guidance of Barretstowns professional staff. The children come from 22 European countries and everything, including airfares, is provided free of charge.
