Adrian Jackson is a neighbour and says while they can't replace the memories and sentimental items that were lost, the community wanted to provide support however they could.

Over €5,000 has been raised in under 24 hours, and a link to the fundraiser is available here.

Adrian says even after a house fire, Mervyn isn't someone to ask for help.
