Gwen Kenny

About Gwen

Award winning interior designer and lecturer in Interior Architecture Gwen Kenny is a long-time supporter of Friends of the Coombe, having already gathered together family and friends to raise money to buy a new incubator for the hospital’s Neonatal Centre in memory of her baby son Rían who tragically passed away at the Coombe Women & Infants University Hospital in 2009 aged just one day old.

Gwen had originally planned to host a physical event in aid of Friends of the Coombe…until the Covid-19 pandemic turned life on its head. It was an idea from industry colleague Adele Roche that resulted in the pair working together to move the event online. And so, InsideOut was born.

“While we were initially disappointed that we couldn’t hold a physical event, the fact that we have reimagined it as a virtual event will broaden our reach as people will be able to access the content no matter where they are and, if they can’t tune into the live content, they can catch-up later on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or YouTube.

“We are so looking forward to sharing the very best of Irish home and garden design, as well as food and drink, with people right across the country, giving them access to some incredible inspiration and advice.”

Adele Roche

About Adele

Colour and design consultant Adele Roche has a lot to thank Irish healthcare professionals for. As someone living with severe Asthma, Adele has seen more than her fair share of doctors and nurses over the years. And, because of her condition, she is one of the thousands of people cocooning during the Covid-19 pandemic, something made all the more difficult by the fact that she is unable to be with her best friend who is currently battling breast cancer.

And so, when Adele was asked if she would be willing to collaborate on a project that would celebrate the very best of her design day job and help raise money for Friends of the Coombe and the care of women and babies, she jumped at the chance to get involved.

“InsideOut is a win for everyone. It is a platform for designers to share ideas, inspiration and best-practice; it is an opportunity for people considering doing some work to their home to learn from the best in the business; and it is a way of raising money for such a good cause.”

“wherever there is a human
in need there is an opportunity for
kindness and to make a
difference “ Keith Heath

Since it was founded in 1826, the Coombe Women & Infants University Hospital has distinguished itself as a world-class medical centre of excellence, providing care for babies and women of all ages.

The Coombe is one of the largest and most comprehensive providers of women and infant healthcare in Europe and, as a national referral hospital, takes care of patients with the most complex of obstetric, paediatric and gynaecological conditions from right across the country and, in some instances, from across the island of Ireland.

There is an enormous pressure on resources and, through fundraising alone, Friends of the Coombe has bought a long list of vital equipment, invested in capital development projects, funded education, training and research projects and provided accommodation for parents whose babies are being cared for in the Hospital’s Neonatal Centre, all of which help to enhance the quality of care and patient experience provided by the Hospital and its staff.

Please help us to make a difference and donate now.
