DEBRA Ireland, is a charitable organisation established in 1988 to help children born with EB, or epidermolysis bullosa. It raises funds to research the causes of EB, and ultimately to find a cure for the disease. EB is a very painful genetic skin condition whereby both internal and external skin becomes “as delicate and fragile as the wings of a butterfly, and just as easily damaged” (DEBRA flyer 18-8-2013). Hence, DEBRA’s butterfly logo.
On 18th August 2013, DEBRA hosted a fund raising event in Templeogue College, Dublin. [mO] went along to see the facinating range of classic cars, and to talk to some of their owners.
