Run for Fergal

8th Jun 2022

This week we held a special event when the whole Aughadarragh community took part in a sponsored run around Knockmany Forest in memory of a special man, Fergal McCann. Fergal was a parent, our school coach and a friend to us all. Mrs Quinn presented a cheque to Fergal's wife, Roisin and daughter, Aoife as our pupils collected sponsorship and we donated £2,400 to Fergal's family's chosen charity; Marie Curie. Thank you to everyone who sponsored our amazing children. Thank you to Patrick Treanor and all at TM3 for sponsoring our special commemorative running tops, to Conor McElroy from Spar who sponsored the refreshments and to our fantastic running coach, Mark Donnelly, who has been putting us through our paces this last few weeks in readiness for our run. As Fergal ran the pathways in Knockmany numerous times, his spirit remained with us as we honoured his memory. Rest easy, Fergal.
