€4,000 raised in Cathal’s mem­ory

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

BROTHERS and friends of Cathal Hy­land marked the tenth an­niver­sary of his pass­ing by tak­ing part in a gru­elling moun­tain run in the Ox Mountains, Sligo.

Cathal sadly passed away on Oc­to­ber 9, 2007, and, to re­mem­ber him, his brothers Tommy, Ciaran, Cor­mac and Pau­ric, along with 13 of Cathal’s friends, took part in the Ox Chal­lenge.

‘We raised €4,125 for the lo­cal Ark­low Cancer Sup­port Group,’ said Pau­ric.

Cor­mac fin­ished the 10 mile run first of the group in one hour and 16 min­utes and came 16th over­all out of 300 com­peti­tors.

Fol­low­ing their hard run, Cathal’s sis­ters Denise and Julie pre­pared a lovely din­ner for the group back in Ark­low.

‘Neville Doyle of Mor­gan Doyle Fur­ni­ture drove us and I want to thank Martin Lynch of 33400 for the use of the bus,’ said Pau­ric.

Cathal is sadly missed by his par­ents Ann and Tommy and all of his fam­ily and friends.
