Amazing news: James Quinlan is home and receiving treatment in Ireland. Family thanks car community for support

James Quinlan is home and receiving medical treatment in Kerry, thanks to the generosity of the Kerry (and wider) motorsport and classic car community. 

The Quinlan family have expressed their immense gratitude to the Kerry and wider motoring community following last month’s car show in Tralee to help raise funds for James Quinlan. 

Several fundraisers were organised in a short time including the car show in Tralee on February 13. 

Over 200 cars, representing members of the organising Kerry Motor Club, neighbouring clubs like Killarney and District Motor Club and Kingdom Veteran and Vintage Car Club were on show on the day. Over €23,000 was raised on the day and this money and money from other funds helped to get James home to Ireland and will be vital for James’s future care. 

James suffered a major brain haemorrhage in New York just before Christmas. After initially receiving outstanding urgent medical care the family repatriated James home to Ireland for further treatment. He is currently under the care of University Hospital Kerry and Cork University Hospital. James is showing great improvement. 

His sister Karina said : 

“Again we do not have words to express the gratitude our family feels to all who donated their time and monies to assist us and James in his Journey to Recovery. We are so indebted to have him home, spending time with him drinking tea and watching rally footage, old and new…on repeat!”
