Borrisoleigh Track-Attack Notes

Track-Attack Trio Head to Dublin

It’s only just over three weeks away for one of the highlights of the Irish athletics year. On Sunday 30th October, over 17 thousand people will thread the streets and outskirts of the capital as they attempt to complete the SSE Airtricity Dublin marathon.

Three Track-Attackers will attempt the ancient distance for the first time and will do so while raising funds for Suir Haven. It’s no ordinary trio however as it will be a family affair when Kathleen O’Meara will be joined her daughters Sinead and Aoife.




The popular trio are great supporters of all things Track-Attack and of the local road running events. Although the 26.2 mile distance is a daunting task for most, it’s something that the trio will take in their stride and complete without fuss.

Their efforts are well worth the support of all so we would encourage people to support them and the charity that is close to their hearts.

Suir Haven is a Thurles based Cancer support centre located in Clongour Road. It offers emotional support, practical help and information and education to anyone with a cancer diagnosis, their carers and family members.
