Eilish Collins Memorial

Family and friends of the late Eilish Collins will gather together on Sunday 5th June to walk or run in her memory.

The 6k coastal walk/run is in aid of Marymount Hospice & Cork ARC Cancer Support House Bantry/Cork. Eilish used these facilities during her illness & to date over €32, 500 has been raised in the area towards these charities.

Eilish was very well known & loved in her community and beyond. She’s remembered for her musical talents, her great love of sports and especially for her loving warm smile.

The walk/run will leave the car park of the Skibbereen Eagle bar in Tragumna at 3pm on Sunday June 5th and this year an increase in runners is expected due to the newly formed park run in the area.

There will be refreshments served after the walk & Eilish's friends & family will provide an evening of traditional music.

There are some super prizes in this years raffle including afternoon tea in 5*Castlemartyr Resort, 2 nights B&B in the 5* Park Hotel Kenmare & afternoon tea in 5* Sheen Falls Lodge, tickets for raffle will be sold on the day.

Sponsorship cards are available from the Skibbereen Eagle bar or by contacting 028/22148 or 0866088194. All welcome.
