    Just posting this here for anyone who wants to do a small (or big) run and donate a few bob to a very worthy cause.
    I know the work these people do goes largely un noticed until we hear of such tragic circumstances.
    I know that some members stayed with her body all through the night, which can't have been easy.

    Athletics legend Sonia O’Sullivan is organising a Memorial Race for Horse & Jockey native Gillian Ryan, who died while out for a run on the Comeragh Mountains last week.
    'The ‘Irishman Running Abroad Virtual 5K In Memory of Gillian Ryan’ is being held on this Sunday, May 2, from 9am and can be run from any location in the world as part of the Strava running app.
    Those who plan on taking part in the race on Sunday and their supporters are welcome to donate to the link below.
