Fun Run
On Sunday, March 1 we had a very successful fun run in aid of Down Syndrome Tipperary Branch. We had a great turn out with 120 people running and walking the route, thank you to all who came along and supported us. We raised a fantastic €1300 for Down Syndrome Tipperary. Thanks to the members of Down Syndrome Tipperary for helping us out. Thanks also to Leugh Muintir na Tire for the use of the hall. Well done to Gillian Ryan, Michael Gleeson and Evan Nolan who were the first three runners to cross the finish line. See picture on page 23.
