Dublin 2 Donegal

After the tough decision to postpone their original dates for Dublin2donegal, we are delighted that on October 25th - 31st, Barry, Dave, Eamon and Eoin, will take to the roads running 7 half marathons in 7 days from Dublin2donegal!

Their story began in 2016 when they ran Dublin City Marathon and an initial €5,000 was raised in aid of Make-A-Wish.

Three years and 9 marathons between them later, they have raised over an amazing €30,000 to help Make-A-Wish Ireland grant wishes in Séimí Brennan’s name.

During lockdown they held a 'Séimí’s Virtual 5k' event, and thanks to the power of Séimí, their fundraising total now amazingly stands just shy of €22,000!

Training and planning is back in full flow, and we'd like to wish the lads the very best of luck in October.
