SLIDESHOW: Mark Gilmore Memorial Gala Ball

Members of a Ballymena family have hosted a special fundraising gala ball in memory of little Mark Gilmore who passed away almost 20 years ago after a battle with leukaemia.

Eric Gilmore said the loss of his brother is still with him to this day and so, with cousins Gary Gilmore and Fiona Beggs, he wanted to pay a special tribute by raising funds for Leukaemia and Lymphoma NI.
