Corporate Support

We have been so lucky to work with many of Munster’s top Employers who have give us 1000s of hours of CSR support annually.

On an average year we host up to 50 Corporare Social Responsibility (CSR) events at the Field of Dreams.  We are also very proud that our shop in Merchant's Quay was a finalist at the Lord Mayor’s Civic, Culture & Community & Voluntary Awards 2023.

We are still dreaming...

We are currently planning the next phase of our Field of Dreams with a wonderful Centre of Excellence that will support all our members from birth to adulthood at the preliminary stages of planning.   But first, we have a lot of fundraising to do.  If you would like to help us please contact us at info@downsydromecork.ie
