Ce­line re­mem­bered in walk from the Naul

Fingal Independent - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

A young Naul woman who spent the last years of her life rais­ing money to fight the dis­ease she even­tu­ally suc­cumbed to will be re­mem­bered.

The Dare 2 Care fun run and walk over 5k or 8k will take place on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 14 in Naul, in mem­ory of Ce­line Reilly Flynn.

Ce­line Reilly Flynn was born and raised in Naul Vil­lage and at an all too young age, in April of 2016, Ce­line was di­ag­nosed with breast can­cer.

Dur­ing her treat­ment Ce­line com­mit­ted her­self to rais­ing funds and aware­ness for a char­ity very close to her heart, called NECRET (North East Can­cer Re­search & Ed­u­ca­tion Trust) who sup­port the On­col­ogy Unit, in Our Lady of Lour­des Hos­pi­tal.

Un­for­tu­nately af­ter a brave and coura­geous bat­tle, Ce­line lost her fight with can­cer in July 2017 and now her fam­ily and friends are car­ry­ing on her wish in fundrais­ing for this char­ity to help fight can­cer.

If you walked in 2016 with Ce­line, per­haps you will walk in her mem­ory this year, on Oc­to­ber 14.

This year’s walk starts at 10am from Naul Square. There will also be some fun pre-race ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing a warm up at 9.45am with mem­bers of the lo­cal Dublin ladies All-ire­land win­ning team.

Do­na­tion buck­ets will be placed in the vil­lage and within the car park grounds on the morn­ing of the walk.

Re­fresh­ments will be pro­vided af­ter­wards by kind per­mis­sion of the Sea­mus En­nis Arts Cen­tre and a re­ally fab­u­lous raf­fle will take place also.

Car Park­ing will be avail­able Clann Mhuire GAA grounds.

It prom­ises to be a great fun day and a cel­e­bra­tion of Ce­line’s life all in sup­port of a very good cause.

Ce­line Reilly Flynn.
