Ger's run for the Emma Byrne Foundation

On Jan 11th I'll be taking part in the Art O'Neill Challenge for my good friend's foundation. The Emma Byrne Foundation was established in memory of Emma Byrne, (nee Larkin), who passed away on the 23rd May 2016. Emma was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Luekaemia, (AML) in November 2015. The objective of The Emma Byrne Foundation is to turn a horrible negative into a massive positive in Emma’s name, by raising funds to help find a cure for this disease and aid other causes that were close to Emma’s heart.

The Art O'Neill Challenge is a 53km route retracing a historic escape from Dublin Castle that happened on January 6th, 1592. That night, Art O'Neill, his brother Henry, and Red Hugh O'Donnell broke out of the Castle and made for Glenmalure, to safety. Henry and Hugh both made it to safety but sadly Art, for whom the Challenge is named, succumbed to hypothermia along the way. As part of the modern event we leave Dublin Castle at midnight, run 30km through Dublin and then hike 23km across the Wicklow Mountains. With a little help from Emma, I'm sure it will all go fine.
