About Aoibheann’s Pink Tie

Aoibheann’s Pink Tie was set up in 2010 after Jimmy Norman’s daughter, Aoibheann, passed away. During their long battle with cancer, Jimmy met with a lot of parents going through the trauma of having a child with cancer, and more specifically identified with the financial burden that inevitably follows diagnosis. They are registered with the Irish Cancer Society and affiliated with St. John’s Oncology Ward in Crumlin Hospital. Olympic gold medal champion Katie Taylor is their charity ambassador.

So what does Aoibheann’s Pink Tie do? They provide financial and practical help to those families in need of it. This will hopefully allow the families the ability to focus on their child and working through their illness. Families are often lost in the mix when their children go through this battle, but it’s not just the child that gets cancer, it’s the whole family as each is affected and must struggle.

Aoibheann’s Pink Tie raise funds through various events and fundraisers and use this to support families who are recommended to by the senior social worker in St. John’s Ward Crumlin Hospital.

2 Gluten Free Rosie & Jim Garlic Chicken Kiev
Potatoes, peeled and chopped in half
1 or 2 sprigs of Spring Onion chopped – the white side only
Splash of Milk
Tablespoon of Butter
10-12 Medium sized Asparagus, chop the ends off
Lemon juice, freshly squeezed
Olive Oil
Salt / Pepper

Heat the oven to 190oC or 170oC for fan assisted ovens.

Place the Rosie & Jim Chicken Kiev’s on a baking tray and bake for 25-30 minutes (35-40 minutes if frozen).  Set a timer, just in case!

While they are cooking, chop the potatoes into chucks so that they will cook in 30 minutes.

Boil or steam the potatoes – whichever you prefer, until cooked.

Top Tip - * If your family love mashed potato and you hate mashing, we highly recommend you invest in a Potato Ricer. Smooth mashed potato in minutes without the hard work - it’s a very handy gadget for the kitchen!*

Chop the Spring Onion thinly – using only the white end of the onion.

Steam the Asparagus for 5-6 minutes. If they are very thick they may need another minute, but you want them al dente and crisp.

When the potato is cooked, mash the potatoes in a pan; add a splash of milk, the butter and season with salt and pepper. When it’s nice and creamy add in most of the Spring Onion, but keep a little for plating up.

When the Asparagus are cooked, but still have a little bite, take them off the heat and add a pinch of salt, pepper and a little drizzle of olive oil.

The Rosie & Jim Garlic Chicken Kiev should be ready now, so take them out of the oven and plate up –
Spoon some of the creamy mashed potato on the plate.
Add the Chicken Kiev on top.
Place the Asparagus on the plate and squeeze a little Lemon Juice over it.
Sprinkle the remaining Spring Onion on top

Serve up to your waiting loved one and wait to hear the Mmmmmmmm...!

Congratulations again to Fiona Staunton and her nominated charity Aoibheann's Pink Tie on winning €1000 donation from Rosie & Jim.

Here's Tracey delivering the HUGE cheque!

Aoibheann's Pink Tie

Aoibheann’s Pink Tie “National Children’s Cancer Charity” was set up in 2010 by Mick Rochford and Jimmy Norman after the tragic loss of Jimmy’s daughter Aoibheann to cancer aged just 8 years. During Aoibheann’s year long battle with this dreadful disease, the family found little or no financial or practical support  for children and their families.

Jimmy and his family had a large support network of friends and family but found that many on the ward had virtually no support at all.

When Aoibheann passed away the men wore pink ties at the funeral which was Aoibheann’s favourite colour. The charity was formed in her memory to remedy the lack of support for other children and their families going through treatment.

Rosie & Jim are humbled and thrilled to Make-A-Wish come true for Liam.

Thanks to Irene of Make-A-Wish for sending on this lovely letter.

Liam, age 7, from Galway, lives with a number of medical conditions including chronic lung disease, a metabolic condition called PKU and has an amputated leg. He wished for his own special garden that combines his two big loves – the outdoors and trains. The garden was specially designed to suit Liam’s needs and includes soft play surfaces, planting and landscape features to stimulate the senses, as well as a beautiful train for Liam to climb into and call his own! Liam’s dream of his own peaceful, accessible garden is now a reality thanks to the commitment and generosity of his friends, neighbours, the local business community and of course sponsorship from Rosie & Jim.

Liam’s Mum, Louise, said, “Liam was in hospital until he was four years old and since coming home he just loves playing outside and visiting his local train station to watch the trains come and go. It is truly amazing to have such a perfect place for Liam to call his own and enjoy. The surfaces are perfect for crawling on and he just loves having his very own train!”

Many thanks again for your sponsorship of Liam and Danielle’s wishes – I can guarantee you that the legacy of both will live on for a long time and bring joy and happiness to the lives of these very special children.

Best wishes,

Irene
