HEARTFELT THANKS to everybody who contributed in any way to making the 19th Annual West Clare Mini Marathon the success that it was. Thanks to Donal and Deirdre, Hayes Gala Supermarket Kilkee, for the very welcome refreshments provided after the event, to Maureen and Noel O'Shea for providing transport to Carrigaholt, to Jackie Bourke and Eliza Lillis for their assistance in the Community Centre in Kilkee, and to our stewards on the day. All of these people have faithfully given of their time, energy and resources - free of charge - over the years and it would not be possible to host the event without this generosity of spirit.

Congratulations to our hamper winners - Carmel Shalloo Kilkee, runner number 46 and Eddie Walsh, Mullagh, walker number 191. Congratulations indeed to everybody who took part in the 19th Annual West Clare Mini Marathon on Sunday last, a day that once again demonstrated that tight-knit community spirit and ability to come together to ensure the continued provision of cancer care services for the people of West Clare - a force that has been evident since the beginning nineteen years ago - a force to be reckoned with! Kudos to you, the people!
