Richhill mother Emma Jennings has been honoured as an inspirational mother at a prestigious award ceremony held in Parliament Buildings Stormont.

She was one of 36 mums from across Northern Ireland who has been acknowledged at the SuperValu SuperMums awards ceremony.

SuperValu Richhill finalist Emma, was recognised for her strength, after she went into early labour with her youngest child, Luke while on holiday in Donegal.

Emma managed to support her eldest three children, despite staying by Luke’s side while he was moved between several hospitals.

During this time, Emma donated enough time to feed 15 babies with the help of Tiny Life.

Hundreds of nominations were received for the competition from inspiring mothers and 36 finalists were chosen from SuperValu stores across Northern Ireland.

Geoff Johnston, SuperValu customer manager presented Emma with her certificate and pamper hamper.

Belfast’s Geraldine Cassidy was crowned SuperValu SuperMum 2015 and Co. Down’s Siobhan Rice from Co Down and Claire O’Hanlon from Co. Tyrone were runners up.

Donna Morrison, marketing manager of SuperValu, said: “I would like to congratulate all 36 finalists as they are all very deserving.”

“There are so many inspirational mothers across Northern Ireland who show such humility when dealing with life’s challenges, we are delighted to be able to recognise some of them” Donna added.
