Miltown run/walk remembers Maggie Cullen

THE Maggie Cullen memorial walk/run will take place on New Years Day at 12 noon from Hennessy Park, Miltown.

Maggie was always on hand to help out with any local events or charities  and personified what community spirit means. Following on from Maggie’s untimely passing after a long illness, St Joseph’s decided to name their annual Christmas 5km event in her memory and to help raise money for the West Clare Mini Marathon Cancer Centre which provides such great support and comfort to  cancer sufferers in west Clare. Registration for the event will take place in the clubhouse from 11am on New Years Day with spot prizes and light refreshments afterwards.
