Eilish Collins Memorial Walk/Run

  • Skibbereen Eagle, West Cork (map)

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

To celebrate Eilish's memory, her family and friends and supporters from around the communities in West Cork gather each year for a six-kilometer coastal walk/run with all funds raised benefitting Cork ARC Cancer Support House and Marymount University Hospice. Eilish used these facilities during her illness & to date over €60,000 has been raised in the area towards Cork ARC and Marymount. 

The 6K walk/run will leave the car park of the Skibbereen Eagle bar in Tragumna at 3pm on Sunday 2nd June. There will be refreshments served after the walk & Eilish's friends & family will provide an evening of traditional music.
