Girls sign up to camp in Michaela McAreavey's memory
Young girls will be signing up to a new camp in honour of murdered honeymooner Michaela McAreavey, just before the trial into her killing commences in Mauritius.
The camp is being offered by the Michaela Foundation, set up in honour of the Co Tyrone teacher following her tragic murder in 2010 just 12 days after marrying husband John.
It is the latest scheme of the late beauty queen’s foundation which was set up by her grieving family and husband, including her father, GAA legend Mickey Harte, who said the camp will promote five core elements - faith, fashion, fun, well-being and the Irish language.
Michaela’s grieving widower, John said the camp, for girls aged between 11 and 13 would provide an environment which reflects the core values of the foundation, and will include “a fun-packed week of activities which will leave the girls exhilarated”.
