Eoinie Farrell's Family Fun Run

1 Nov

The passing of Eoinie Farrell at the age of 39 in July 2022 left a huge gap in many people's lives. Eoinie fought his illness with dignity and a quiet determination, and his final days were spent in South Westmeath Hospice in Athlone. The care Eoinie received from all the staff in the hospice was a source of relief in the toughest of times.

Eoinie’s friends and family will hold a 5km family fun run/walk on Saturday 12 November in Ardnagrath to raise funds for the hospice. The hospice relies on voluntary donations to provide their specialist services. If you wish to partake in the run/walk, you can register here.

Here in Wellington, we'll also hold a 5km fun run/walk on Saturday 12 in memory of Eoinie. The run will take place on the waterfront (Darkness into Light route), as Oriental Beach holds many fond memories for us with Eoinie. More details are available on the Facebook event (link below). And you can make a donation to the hospice here.

Maryland vs Wellington/Hutt Valley

Plans are afoot to arrange a meeting of the two great clubs of Eoinie's life, Maryland and Wellingotn/Hutt Valley over Christmas (around 28 December).

We haven't got all the details yet, but it's something we're looking to promote amongst the former Wellington/Hutt Valley community in Ireland.
