Last month, thousands attended Geraldine’s ‘Field of Hope’ in Quigley’s Point over a single weekend.
The two-and-a-half acre field of sunflowers was planted and nurtured by the grieving mum.
She was the sole survivor of a car accident at Lough Foyle which killed her husband John, 49, and children Tomás, 14, and Amelia, six.
At the end of last month, to mark the second anniversary of the tragedy, Geraldine opened the flower-filled field to the public to spread hope, smiles and solidarity with anyone who has experienced loss.
And, she did just that.
Long queues formed early on Saturday, and again on Sunday, as 15,000 people from all over Ireland flocked to see and experience the wonder.
