Thank you everyone who wished me
well and sponsored my charity, the Clare Crusaders, in the lead up to the Dublin City marathon. Thanks to your help we raised over €1,200 for a very worthy cause. For those interested my time was 3hrs 29minutes. That is one minute quicker than it takes the M7 bus to travel from Ennis to Dublin. Regards Shane O'Loughlin.
