After a month of pounding the roads around Celbridge for charities close to our hearts it’s now down to the Elite over 35s to do their bit.

★Run 10,000km to raise funds for 5 charities close to the hearts of Celbridge GAA Club members★


We have had our Senior Footballers running miles and Senior Comogie running kilometres with Ladies football running mini marathons and Senior Hurling running Marathons!

So we will hit the road hard on Saturday next-30th May-at 10am and pass the Castletown gates between 10:30 and 11am...wind dependent!

We are doing this in support of the 5 charities and one in particular Irish Kidney Association (IKA)

We all know someone on dialysis or awaiting a transplant be it lungs,heart or kidney.

That is why it’s so important to carry a card.We will have cards for all those who pass the Castle town Gates on Saturday morning.

The IKA is a charitable organisation that supports patients and families with kidney disease.

The charity supports a wide range of activities for all those affected directly or indirectly

  • Counselling
  • Holiday Dialysis
  • Renal support Beaumont Hospital
  • Research into disease
  • Educational programs for patient and families.

This is a worthy charity in need of your help.

We have 20 runners ready to pick up the baton where the Hurlers left off on Saturday...remember some guys have never ran for a bus never mind 5k...we would like to thank St.Johns Ambulances who have offered their services if needed difibulator in toe.

Most of the guys have a lot of heavy training done early in the year with thoughts of championship football so now is the time to call on that reserve.

We will run 150K that is 7.5 per player.

Thank you to Niamh Egan who came up with this concept and to the athletes,warriors and heroes that have ran to date and to all of you that have donated so generously a very big thank you.

We will start our run from every estate in Celbridge and we ask you once again to don the Club colours and fly the blue and white flag and come out and support the lads ,all of this while

still maintaining social distancing of course.

We have many needs and wants in this present climate but none that compare to the needs of these 5 Charities and IKA that is so dependent on your generosity so please if you can at all spare a few bob and finish in style what Niamh started a month ago and push the dial from 15,100 now to 16,17 and beyond.

With your help and your commitment we can deliver.
