Dublin’s Brave Heart: Fundraiser for Warren Donohoe, the Unsung Hero of Dublin Stabbing Incident

In the heart of Dublin, amidst a scene of chaos and fear, emerged a true hero whose courageous actions likely saved lives but received little public recognition. Warren Donohoe, a Dublin native, was one of the first to intervene during a horrifying knife attack in the city center on November 23rd, 2023, where three children were among the victims.

In a heartwarming display of community spirit, a fundraiser has been organized on GoFundMe by Colin Coleman, aimed at showing appreciation for Warren’s bravery. The campaign, titled “BUY WARREN DONOHOE A PINT!! UNSUNG HERO OF DUBLIN,” has already raised €11,399 of its €20,000 goal, with 871 people contributing to this gesture of gratitude..

The attack, which led to riots and widespread panic in the city, unfolded near a primary school on Parnell Square East. Warren’s intervention, along with that of others, played a crucial role in stopping the attacker and preventing further harm.

As Dubliners and those around the world hear of these events, the fundraiser stands as a beacon of solidarity and support, reminding us of the power of collective action in recognizing and honoring the bravery of individuals like Warren Donohoe. His selflessness and courage in the face of danger exemplify the spirit of Dublin, and this fundraiser is an opportunity for us to say, “Thank you, Warren. Have a pint on us!”

To contribute to this noble cause and show your support for Warren, please visit the GoFundMe page: BUY WARREN DONOHOE A PINT!! UNSUNG HERO OF DUBLIN. Your donation, no matter the size, is a way to join in celebrating a local hero who stood up for his community when it mattered most.
